“Exhilarating! A rhapsodic marriage of music, movement and romance.” - The New York Times

The rapturous musical An American in Paris will play in Sydney from April 2022.

Inspired by the Academy Award®-winning film, acclaimed director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon brings the enchantment and magic of Paris to buoyant life with popular songs by George and Ira Gershwin, including I Got Rhythm, S Wonderful, But Not For Me and They Can’t Take That Away From Me.

This rhapsodic combination of classic score, timeless love story, exuberant dance and sumptuous design has captivated audiences and critics alike, with The Wall Street Journal declaring it “a masterpiece!”

Don’t miss this breath-taking musical in a ground-breaking collaboration between The Australian Ballet and GWB Entertainment.

A Paris to swoon for! Wholly contagious joy of motion is packed into every kick, lift, tap and leap of ‘An American in Paris.’
The Washington Post
A glorious, thoroughly captivating and breathtakingly fresh new musical!
The Hollywood Reporter
Ravishing! It’s hard to breathe, not only because the love story is so romantic, but because we rarely see this kind of dancing on Broadway. An enchanting and deeply moving experience!
Variety
A savvy, poetic cocktail of French chic and Broadway pizzazz.
The Financial Times
