Napoleon Perdis Sponsors The Australian Ballet

Napoleon Perdis is thrilled to announce his sponsorship of The Australian Ballet. The relationship commences with the performance of the ultimate love story – Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. “I’m excited to be working with a company as commanding and awe-inspiring as The Australian Ballet,” says Napoleon.

Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet, David McAllister, said the Napoleon partnership was a beautiful fit for the company. “We’re thrilled that Napoleon created a unique makeup collection especially for our world premiere season of Romeo & Juliet,” he said. “It’s the perfect example of a smart partnership extending beyond the stage and behind the scenes, with our dancers attending master classes with Napoleon’s top makeup artists and really benefitting from this collaboration.”

The theatrical makeup behind a powerful ballet tells as much of a story as the actual performance. “Like the score or the set design, the makeup direction establishes the mood for the performance.” A love story such as Romeo & Juliet calls for a soft romantic makeup look, while a performance like Madame Butterfly demands a powerful eye statement,” says Napoleon. “My team and I look forward to creating a range of looks for each production.”

For Romeo & Juliet, Napoleon wanted to capture the young lovers' all consuming passion. This inspired the creation of his new Love Unleashed makeup collection. “In my eyes, the modern day Juliet is filled with passion, excitement and lust. She wants to look and feel irresistible for her Romeo,” says Napoleon. Channel your inner Juliet with this collection of dreamy beauty must-haves. The Love Unleashed collection includes The Ultimate Contour Palette. This palette allows you to colour, highlight and shape your face for an instant image upgrade.

Romeo and Juliet is now showing at the Sydney Opera House until the 21st December. For future venues, date and tickets visit
