Nicolette Fraillon: The First Female Conductor Of The Australian Ballet

Nicolette Fraillon is Music Director & Chief Conductor of The Australian Ballet. However, her success hasn't come without its battles as she's well and truly broken through the glass ceiling in an industry dominated by men. Regularly asked "But, you're a woman?" Fraillon has continued to open up doors for herself, but won't let the misogyny go unnoticed. Video by Tom Compagnoni and Emily Verdouw.
