Summary
'Terra Australis' was probably the first all-Australian ballet; it premiered in Melbourne on 25 May 1946, was danced by the Borovansky Ballet; narrative was of the exploration of Australia by the 'white settlers' and 'dealt symbolically with the tensions between Indigenous and European cultures'; the National Library holds the original designs by Eve Harris for 'Terra Australis', including costume sketches for the Spirit of Australia, the Aborigine and the Explorer - the principle roles for the ballet
