Suite En Blance / Return to the Strange Land / Beyond Twelve

Australian Ballet

State Theatre - Melbourne 1994

Choreography - Serge Lifar, Jiri Kylian, Graeme Murphy

Suite en Blanc, later retitled Noir et Blanc, is a ballet choreographed by Serge Lifar to music from Édouard Lalo's suite Namouna. The first performance, by the Paris Opera Ballet, took place on 19 June 1943 in Zurich. The original costumes were all white, whence the title ("Suite in White"), but in subsequent productions the male dancers wore black and the title was changed to reflect this ("Black and White")

The roots of the Australian Ballet can be found in the Borovansky Ballet, a company founded in 1940 by the Czech dancer Edouard Borovansky. Borovansky had been a dancer in the touring ballet company of the famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova and, after visiting Australia on tour with the Covent Garden Russian Ballet, he decided to remain in Australia, establishing a ballet school in Melbourne in 1939, out of which he developed a performance group which became the Borovansky Ballet. The company was supported and funded by J. C. Williamson Theatres Ltd from 1944. Following Borovansky's death in 1959, the British dancer and administrator Dame Peggy van Praagh DBE was invited to become artistic director of the company. J. C. Williamson Theatres Ltd decided to disband the Borovansky Ballet in 1961.
