If you've ever had a chance to see the Australian Ballet in action, there's a good chance you'll have seen them performing works choreographed by the country's leading dancemaker, Graeme Murphy. 

To celebrate Murphy’s prolific 50-year career with the Aussie Ballet, the company will perform a repertoire of some of his greatest moments at the company at the Sydney Opera House. Titled Murphy, the bill will feature Murphy’s acclaimed 2009 take on ‘Firebird’ (created for the Australian Ballet, as part of a triple bill paying homage to major 20th century works by the Ballet Russes), alongside a series of shorter works created during his tenure as artistic director of Sydney Dance Company. You'll get a snapshot of Graeme's career highlights including The Silver Rose, Air and Other Invisible ForcesGrand, and Ellipse

Graeme Murphy started off his career in the Australian Ballet's corps de ballet, before making his way to be the head of Sydney Dance Company. Across his five-decade-long career, Murphy has propelled his bold and passionate artistry onto the stages of Australia and across the world, and this performance will showcase a snapshot of his talent.
