The Australian Ballet and GWB Entertainment are delighted to bring the Australian Premiere of the rapturous Broadway  musical  An American in Paris to commence a National Tour in January 2022 in Brisbane at QPAC’s Lyric Theatre.

Hailed as a tour de force for its stunning 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.

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!”
