RNZB Senior Costumier Andrew Pfeiffer passes away


On Friday 3 March at 11.15pm, RNZB’s beloved Senior Costumier, Andrew Carl Pfeiffer (affectionately known as “Pfeiff”) passed away aged 69 at Mary Potter Hospice in Wellington surrounded by dear friends

Andrew was Senior Costumier at the Royal New Zealand Ballet for 30 years and an irreplaceable member of the RNZB family.  His artistry and skill was matched only by his wicked sense of humour and generous spirit.  He will be missed more than words can say.

Our heartfelt thanks to everyone at Mary Potter Hospice Wellington for their incredible care of Andrew over the last few months.

Rest in Peace Pfeiff.
