Tutus on Tour
October 15 @ 7:00 pm – 10:30 pm
A carefully curated programme of works, from beloved classical favourites to recent works that have claimed a rightful place on the international stage.
The pas de trois from Le Corsaire offers firecracker virtuosity, while the joyful ‘Waltz of the Flowers’ and the grand pas de deux from Val Caniparoli’s production of The Nutcracker look forward to Christmas with warmth and grandeur.
On the contemporary side, Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain pas de deux (2005) makes its RNZB debut, and Olivier Wevers’ The Sofa (2013) introduces this rising star of contemporary choreography to Aotearoa. Rounding out this generous programme of dance is RNZB Choreographer Shaun James Kelly’s The Ground Beneath Our Feet (2019), an exuberant ballet, tailor-made for the RNZB.
