Swan Lake Ballet Theatre Book launch

1st December, 2009 – Melbourne, VIC

Avenue Bookstore in Albert Park hosted a splendid book launch against a jacaranda tree backdrop, to celebrate the publication of Viola Ann Seddon and Jean Mahoney’s third ballet box in their series – Swan Lake. Ann and her husband, who normally reside in Tuscany, Italy, had flown in to Melbourne for the event and gave a lovely speech. The launch was begun by Melbourne artist Mirka Mora whose doll-making workshop inspired Ann to start making dolls some years ago, and many champagne glasses were raised in Ann’s honour. The bookshop’s front window had been decorated in a delightful display using the actual ballet dolls stood in poses from Ann’s own personal collection.

Ann happily signed many copies of all her ballet boxes (also including The Sleeping Beauty and Nutcracker) as many who attended the launch bought copies as the perfect gift for little girls and balletomanes this Christmas.
