The Ballet World will be losing one of it's shining stars this year when The Australian Ballet's Principal artist Madeleine Eastoe retires. The 36 year old beauty will take her final bow after once more performing the role of Giselle, her christening role as a newly promoted principal in 2006. After 18 years of dancing with the Australian Ballet Madeleine will be focusing on spending more time with her family (husband and choreographer Tim Harbour and six year old daughter Ella); “I want to be around more for them. They have been extremely adaptable with my job.”
We wish you all the very best with your new path Madeleine, your presence on stage will be greatly missed!
