Written by: SABT

Born in Bangor, Northern Ireland, Michael Revie studied at the Lower and Upper Schools of the Royal Ballet School for eight years before joining the Deutsche Oper am Rhein in Dusseldorf in 1993. In 1997 he became a principal dancer with the Zürich Ballet under director and choreographer Heinz Spoerli who created many roles for him, most notably the leading role in 'Mozartiana' for which he was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award in London in 2001. Mr. Revie joined the Birmingham Royal Ballet as a principal dancer in 2002 where he demonstrated his formidable virtuoso talents in a broad range of roles.

His repertoire includes ballets by Balanchine, Ashton, MacMillan, Robbins, Spoerli, Bintley, Van Manen, Ek and Forsythe as well as leading roles in 'The Sleeping Beauty', 'The Nutcracker', 'Giselle' and 'Romeo and Juliet'. A career highlight was dancing in Twyla Tharp's 'Push Comes to Shove' in a role created for Mikhail Baryshnikov and subsequently danced by just a handful of virtuoso dancers around the world.

Mr. Revie joined The South African Ballet Theatre as a Principal Dancer in July 2005. He has performed title roles in the SABT’s ‘Triple Bill’ season, Franz in ‘Coppelia’, Fiancé / Prince in ‘The Nutcracker’ and Basilio in ‘Don Quixote’.

In March 2008, Mr Revie underwent major heart surgery (for Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome). He undertook the procedure in the UK where the surgery was performed by the surgeon to former Prime Minister Mr Tony Blair. The Cryoablation procedure is a relatively new procedure which Mr Revie elected to undergo in order to avoid having a pacemaker inserted. Mr Revie returned to the stage for the ‘Autumn Enchantment’ season presented in collaboration with The Black Tie Ensemble.
