Celebrating 70 years of the RNZB

To mark our 70th birthday, the Royal New Zealand Ballet is delighted to present Platinum, a celebratory evening of ballet, on Friday 13 October, including excerpts from favourite works spanning 70 years.

For one night only at the St James Theatre, see the full company onstage in highlights from Flower Festival at Genzano, Swan Lake, Giselle Act II, The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty, Don Quixote and La Sylphide, plus RNZB favourites FrENZy, Stand To Reason, an excerpt from Moss Patterson’s 2023 creation for the RNZB, Te Ao Mārama, and a new work by Choreographer in Residence Shaun James Kelly inspired by Russell Kerr’s landmark ballet, Prismatic Variations.


This is a one-off performance and is not part of the RNZB’s 2023 subscription season, but current supporters, including Friends of the RNZB, and subscribers, are offered priority booking before seats go on general sale via Ticketmaster. Special prices are available for children, seniors and students. We regret that the Friends’ discount is not available for this single show.
