Set to the timeless score of Tchaikovsky, and with breathtaking designs by Gabriela Tylesova the Australian Ballet presents the sleeping beauty. All the magic of the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm comes to life at the Arts Centre.
Baroque golds and creams of the costumes glow with vibrant colours whilst nymphs, fairies, princes and princesses bring the delightful musical score to life.

Time for some winter fun for the whole family, get your skates out of the closet and head down to Federation Square. Outdoor fun at its very best as you take a spin around River Rink in Federation Square.
The Rink gives picturesque views of the Yarra River and the Melbourne skyline, and as well as skating there is plenty of seasonal winter-warming food and drink from local vendors on sale.
