Edward Smith

Edward Smith was born in Camden, NSW, and developed a love for classical ballet at an early age. At 16, Edward was accepted into the Australian Ballet School before joining The Australian Ballet where he performed corps de ballet and soloist roles in works by Christopher Wheeldon, Alexei Ratmansky and John Neumier, amongst a repertoire of traditional classical ballets, most notably the principal role of ‘Franz’ in Coppelia and the ‘Peasant Pas de Deux’ in Giselle. In October of 2020, Edward accepted a position with the Royal New Zealand Ballet, one of the only ballet companies on stage during that time, and performed in their acclaimed seasons of The Sleeping Beauty and Giselle. Edward is delighted to return to Australia in order to join the cast of The Phantom of the Opera which marks his musical theatre debut.
