David McAllister AM

At about 10:40 am Ed Lippmann will co-present Sydney By Design – but this series has been dubbed Sydney As It Could Be. In Part 4 this week, we talk to Frank Sartor, former Lord Mayor of Sydney and former Minister for Planning in the NSW government.

At 11 am I will play you an interview I recorded on Monday with David McAllister AM, Artistic Director of the Australian Ballet, making a very welcome and now annual visit to Arts Wednesday. Our conversation is about uber cool and uber trendy in the world of ballet today.

Music will feature all my favourites for this year.

This will be my last show this year – I return to Arts Wednesday on 11 January 2012. Maisy Stapleton will present the show for the next 2 weeks and for Arts Wednesday January 4, I have prerecorded a Best of 2011, featuring interviews with Rabbi Zalman Kastel and Sheikh Hassam Farache about their work in Together For Humanity and then an interview with Hanifa Dean, about her book Abdul Vs The King.

Thank you all so much for sharing your Wednesday  mornings with me this year and I look forward to your company in 2012. Compliments of the season to you all!
