Following sell-out performances around New Zealand in 2018, the RNZB is delighted to be expanding Tutus on Tour to take in eleven regional centres in 2019. From Kerikeri and Whangarei to Oamaru and Gore, Tutus on Tour brings family-friendly performances to heartland New Zealand.

Our dancers will perform classical favourites and contemporary works, tailor-made for intimate venues, and suitable for all ages. Full repertoire will be announced in the new year.

Working in partnership with our Community and Education programme, Tutus on Tour also gives local schools in some centres 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.

Tutus on Tour is not part of the RNZB’s 2019 subscription season. Tickets on sale now.
