He’s the man behind one of Australia’s most beloved family ballets, George Ogilvie is also the bloke who kick started Russell Crowe’s movie career. The 85-year-old has directed for the small and big screen, but his real passion is the stage which is why a semi-retired Mr Ogilvie was lured back to work by the Australian Ballet, to revisit one of his career highlights, Coppelia.
It’s an important piece in The Australian Ballet’s history, performed during the company’s inaugural season in 1962 and then revived in 1979 in a new production by The Australian Ballet’s founding Artistic Director Dame Peggy van Praagh and Mr Ogilvie.
Coppelia is on stage at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre though to 1 October, before touring to Sydney Opera House for a festive-season run from 2 to 21 December.

Cinema – Russell Crowe
“My favourite movie would easily be the ‘Gladiator’. I often find myself mouthing the dialogues with actor Russell Crowe as I watch it. The sheer theatrics of cinema excite me, be it the comic timing or the special effects. I am easily pleased and crack up at the silliest jokes. Even the most cliched of ‘leave your brains at home to watch this flick’ kind of movies make me happy.

My love for Bollywood music often translates into my love for Bollywood movies. ‘Sholay’ is for me an all-time classic.”
