The Australian Ballet's 2019 season has undergone a revision. It was announced today (on Facebook and Instagram) that due to "unexpected health concerns of choreographer Graeme Murphy" the anticipated The Happy Prince would be postponed into 2020. Céline Gittens, Birmingham Royal Ballet Principal, is guesting with the company in the Wheeldon Alice as the Queen of Hearts; she is currently in Melbourne but no announcement has been made as to whether she is performing in Brisbane or Melbourne. 2019 now looks like this: Brisbane 25 Feb - 2 Mar: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Wheeldon) Melbourne 9-28 Mar: Cinderella (Ratmansky) - replaces The Happy Prince Sydney 5-25 Apr: Verve mixed bill - Constant Variants (Baynes), Aurum (Topp), Filigree and Shadow (Harbour) Sydney 1-18 May: Giselle (Gielgud after everybody else) - replaces The Happy Prince Melbourne 8-22 Jun: Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Wheeldon) Melbourne 27 Jun - 6 Jul: Les Ballets de Monte Carlo with Lac (Maillot) while Australian Ballet is in Paris Melbourne 31 Aug - 10 Sep: Sylvia (Welch) Melbourne 17-28 Sep: The Nutcracker (Wright) minus Hans-Peter Adelaide 8-12 Oct: The Nutcracker (Wright) minus Hans-Peter Sydney 8-23 Nov: Sylvia (Welch) Sydney 30 Nov - 18 Dec: The Nutcracker (Wright) minus Hans-Peter
