Due to forecasted rain over the coming days, the sold-out Gala Evening with West Australian Ballet on Wednesday 20 March at 6pm will now be held at Wanangkura Stadium in South Hedland.

The size of the production requires set up and bump in to occur several days before the live show, therefore the high risk of rain necessitated the venue change.

It would not be possible to set up electrical equipment and staging infrastructure in the Civic Centre Gardens if rain were to occur.

Food vans will still be at the stadium, and attendees who have purchased gourmet picnic baskets can pick them up at the stadium.

Attendees do not need to bring blankets and rugs as seating will be provided.

In 1952, West Australian Ballet was established by Madame Kira Bousloff – the first ballet company formed in Australia that is still in existence today.

Madame Bousloff, a Ballerina with the Ballets Russes, had travelled to the east coast of Australia in 1938. After completing her commitment with the Ballets Russes she travelled west to Perth on holiday and fell in love with the city, declaring that the beautiful coastline reminded her of the French Riviera.

Since its formation, West Australian Ballet has developed an impressive reputation for superior classical and contemporary ballet and contemporary dance of the highest level. Its repertoire continues to develop steadily; classical ballet forming the foundation for the Company’s vocabulary, combined with a distinct contemporary outlook on the art form. West Australian Ballet stages everything from full length classical ballets, narrative ballets and shorter works, and encompasses a variety of choreographic styles.
