Napoleon Perdis Sponsors The Australian Ballet
August 2011. Australia's leading makeup artist Napoleon Perdis is thrilled to announce hissponsorship of The Australian Ballet. The relationship commences with the performance of theultimate love story - Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet - at the Arts Centre in Melbourne, directed byfamed choreographer Graeme Murphy in September. "I'm excited to be working with a companyas commanding and awe-inspiring as The Australian Ballet," says Napoleon.
Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet, David McAllister, said the Napoleon partnership was abeautiful fit for the company. "We're thrilled that Napoleon will be creating a unique makeupcollection especially for our world premiere season of Romeo & Juliet," he said. "It's the perfectexample of a smart partnership extending beyond the stage and behind the scenes, with ourdancers attending master classes with Napoleon's top makeup artists and really benefitting fromthis collaboration."
The theatrical makeup behind a powerful ballet tells as much of a story as the actualperformance. "Like the score or the set design, the makeup direction establishes the mood for theperformance." A love story such as Romeo & Juliet calls for a soft romantic makeup look, while aperformance like Madame Butterfly demands a powerful eye statement," says Napoleon. "Myteam and I look forward to working with the company and creating a range of looks for eachproduction."
For Romeo & Juliet, Napoleon wanted to capture the young lovers' all consuming passion. Thisinspired the creation of his new Love Unleashed makeup collection. "In my eyes, the modern dayJuliet is filled with passion, excitement and lust. She wants to look and feel irresistible for herRomeo," says Napoleon.
