After the successful return of the RNZB’s Tutus on Tour in 2017, we are delighted to continue bringing the magic of ballet to all corners of New Zealand in 2018, through our much-loved regional touring programme.
Supported by Ryman Healthcare, seven regional centres will have the opportunity to see the dancers of the RNZB performing classical favourites and contemporary works, tailor-made for smaller venues, and suitable for all ages.
Working in partnership with our Community and Education programme, Tutus on Tour also gives local schools the chance to get up close to the RNZB with Ballet in a Box: observing the dancers’ daily warm up, watching them perform brief works, and then exploring their world via a Q&A session. In the evening, the dancers will present performances from the company’s repertoire, in full costume.
Repertoire may vary from centre to centre, and will be announced in advance of each mini-tour.
Tutus on Tour is not part of the RNZB’s 2018 subscription season.
