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

The rapturous musical An American in Paris is now playing until 12 June.

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.

Broadway and West End leads Robbie Fairchild and Leanne Cope will reprise their show-stopping turns as the American GI Jerry Mulligan and the young Parisian dancer Lise Dassin in Australia, with two of the country’s leading lights Cameron Holmes and Dimity Azoury from The Australian Ballet, to alternate in the lead roles.

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.

An American In Paris runs for two hours and 35 minutes, which includes a 20-minute interval.

A sumptuous musical extravaganza.
