The Royal New Zealand Ballet presents Allegro – a powerhouse of five dynamic ballets from leading international choreographers.
Precision, musicality, virtuoso technique – Russian classicism meets New York flair in a breathless display of classical ballet at its finest.
LES LUTINS (‘THE GOBLINS’)
Flirty and fun, two male dancers compete for the attention of a single female with increasingly daredevil moves – things are not what they seem following the addition of a violinist and pianist to the stage.
This new piece, specially created for the RNZB, will include electronic music, animation and kinetic sculpture integrated with the dance.
Larry Keigwin’s Final Dress, created for the RNZB in 2012, caused a sensation. We are proud to introduce two more works by Larry Keigwin to New Zealand audiences as part of Allegro.
Created in 2003, Mattress Suite is made up of six scenes about love affairs, either on or near a mattress.
‘Mr Keigwin made dynamite choices in Megalopolis, a divinely well-structured encounter between formalism and club culture.’ – The New York Times, 2009
Larry Keigwin’s style fuses Broadway, club culture and the worlds of fashion and burlesque.
