The Australian Ballet Performs at Lincoln Center

The Australian Ballet is paying a visit to Lincoln Center for six performances and two programs in celebration of its 50th anniversary. The first, Infinity (June 12–13), includes a collaboration with Bangarra Dance Theatre, Australia’s premier indigenous modern-dance company. The work, Warumuk – In the Dark Night, blends two dance traditions and pays homage to the night sky of northern Australia. The second program is Graeme Murphy’s brilliant and inventive Swan Lake (June 15–17), in which Siegfried isn’t a sorcerer but a man torn between his new bride, Odette, and his former lover. Murphy’s fresh take on the classical canon is not to be missed, and neither is the entire production. The Australian Ballet comes to the U.S. infrequently; a Bangarra visit is even rarer—and it’s a long trip to see them at home Down Under. $29–$149; 20 Lincoln Center (Columbus Ave. and 63rd St.); 212-496-0600;
