Annual Appeal

Make it happen.

The RNZB invites you to play a part in the work of your national ballet company by supporting the Annual Appeal. Gifts of all sizes are very welcome and help the RNZB to pursue key activities and achieve success.

Appeal Appeal gifts received during 2016 have assisted preliminary work on the costumes for our upcoming world premiere of Francesco Ventriglia’s Romeo and Juliet, beautifully created by Academy Award winning designer James Acheson. We hope that supporters will feel a special pride when they see these designs come to life on stage during the 2017 Season.

In 2017, gifts to the Annual Appeal will be directed towards the RNZB dancer wellness programme, helping keep our dancers healthy and injury-free so that they can continue to delight audiences. Great performances onstage begin with dedicated work offstage. From the rehearsal studios to the Pilates room to the physio table, our dancers are shaping and strengthening their art. By supporting us in supporting them, your 2017 gift to the Annual Appeal ensures that RNZB dancers will continue to perform at their peak.
