Notes In 1936 the revolutionary ballet company, The Ballets Russes, arrived in Australia, awakening the nation to a new world of modernist art and culture. It inspired a generation of local artists, dancers and designers, who shook down the walls of conformism and ignited the passion of audiences across the country. It also led directly to the foundation of The Australian Ballet.
Summary A fascinating and profoundly moving documentary, including recent interviews with former members of the original Ballets Russes, extensive footage of the company in Australia, and a behind-the-scenes journey into The Australian Ballet's 2009 Firebird, with choreographer Graeme Murphy.
