The ravishing musical An American in Paris comes to QPAC for its keenly-awaited Australian premiere in January 2022.
Hailed as a tour de force for its inventive choreography, the four-time Tony Award-winning Broadway musical tells the entrancing story of a young American soldier and a beautiful French girl, set against the iconic backdrop of the most romantic city in the world.
Inspired by the Academy Award-winning MGM film, acclaimed director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon brings the enchantment and magic of Paris alive on stage with popular songs by George and Ira Gershwin, including “I Got Rhythm”, “But Not For Me”, “S Wonderful” and “They Can’t Take That Away From Me”.
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!”.
Be among the first to see this breath-taking musical in a ground-breaking collaboration between The Australian Ballet and GWB Entertainment.
