After 22 years at The Australian Ballet, Principal Artist Amy Harris has taken her final bow.

Harris was surrounded by her colleagues as the final curtain dropped at the Sydney Opera House last Friday night (24 November), after she had played Marguerite in Sir Frederick Ashton’s Marguerite and Armand, a role originally created for Margot Fonteyn.

Harris’ retirement was announced last month, with the milestone decision coinciding with The Australian Ballet’s 60th anniversary.
