Tutus on Tour booking opens December 2, 10am.

The Royal New Zealand Ballet is delighted to expand the company’s much-loved regional touring programme in 2020, featuring works tailor-made for the RNZB by trail blazing choreographers at home in New Zealand and on the world stage. These hour-long performances are tailor-made for intimate venues, and suitable for all ages.

With tickets priced at just $27-$37 for adults ($12-$22 for children) these special shows sell fast. Booking opens on December 2.

The Programme:

Inspired by the goddess of the hunt and of the moon, Sarah Foster-Sproull’s Artemis Rising was created in 2019 as a retirement gift for the much-loved former RNZB Principal Abigail Boyle, with a graceful, evocative solo for a strong female dancer at its heart.

Remember, Mama is a tender look at the relationships between mothers and sons, from childhood to old age. It was made by Danielle Rowe for the RNZB’s critically acclaimed Strength & Grace season in 2018, marking the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand.

Berceuse by US choreographer Penny Saunders is a rapturous, deeply musical pas de deux set to a lyrical lullaby by Benjamin Godard.

Completing the line-up is a new classical work by young Canadian dancer and choreographer Kiara Flavin. Wayward will celebrate the power of dancers performing in harmony with great music, compassion, strength and soul.

This is a fantastic opportunity to see your national ballet company up close.

Tutus on Tour is not part of the RNZB’s 2020 subscription season. Booking opens on December 2.
