If you thought the ballet was already a magical experience, just wait until you catch those arabesques and pirouettes by moonlight, when The Australian Ballet takes its popular Ballet Under the Stars session to regional Victoria to the very first time.

The company will bring its full-length starlit production of Giselle to Gippsland's Lardner Park on Saturday, October 26. It'll be hosted by ARIA Award-winning Australian songstress Megan Washington and, best of all, it's free.

Be swept up in the romance of Giselle's timeless love story, worlds away and decades after it first hit the stage in Paris in 1841, telling the tale of a young rural girl and a Count who disguises himself as a peasant to win her heart. Recreated for The Australian Ballet by Maina Gielgud in 1986, it's a whirlwind story of love, heartbreak, death, revenge and forgiveness.

You can't BYO booze, but you there'll be plenty of snacks, meals and alcohol available to purchase from a range of food stalls, including local wines, cheeses, Gippsland Diary tiramisu and Baw Baw Organics hazelnut brownies. Hampers for $50 are also available to pre-order.

While the performance is free, capacity is limited, so you'll want to register on the waitlist to be sure to nab a spot.
