With over 900 international artists presenting their best work at the Melbourne Art Fair, this is an event that should not be missed. This biennial event takes place from August 1-5 and brings forward every type of art form you can possibly imagine: paintings, sculptures, photography, video installations, and other forms of multi media. Furthermore, you not only get to view and purchase these wonderful pieces of art, but there are also several opportunities to attend lectures and forums where you can engage with the artists on a face-to-face basis. http://www.artfair.com.au

When Russian classics and ballet combine, they create a spectacular show called the Eifman Ballet. From August 15-26, world-renowned choreographer Boris Eifman is presenting his interpretation of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina and Tchaikovsky through the elegant medium of ballet. Eifman is said to be "one of the creative artists of Russia" as he takes on timeless and passionate dramas and honors Russia creative legends. http://www.eifmanballetinaustralia.com
