  • Ty King-Wall 3

Ty King-Wall is promoted to principal artist onstage after performing as Basilio in Don Quixote. King-Wall, whom Artistic Director David McAllister describes as “a born prince”, was singled out early in his career by Tim Harbour, who made the role of Ceyx in Halcyon on him, and Graeme Murphy, who chose him to play the lead role of Octavian in The Silver Rose. In the lead-up to his promotion, he had danced major principal roles such as Prince Siegfried in Swan Lake and Pinkerton in Madame Butterfly, and shone as the Principal Man in Ètudes at The Australian Ballet’s 50th Anniversary Gala.
