TWO PRINCIPAL ARTISTS RETIRE FROM THE AUSTRALIAN BALLET

The Australian Ballet has announced the retirement of two of its Principal Artists, Andrew Killian and Kevin Jackson, who both leave the company after long and highly successful careers.

Andrew Killian joined the company in 2000 after graduating from The Australian Ballet School and quickly showed his versatility. He was made a Principal Artist in 2011 and went on to dance lead roles in countless ballets including Kenneth MacMillan’s Manon, both Stephen Baynes and Graeme Murphy’s Swan Lake, Graeme Murphy’s Romeo & Juliet, Peter Wright’s The Nutcracker and John Neumeier’s Nijinsky.
