Tutus On Tour 2019

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.

Tutus On Tour
Our dancers will perform classical favourites and contemporary works, tailor-made for intimate venues, and suitable for all ages.
The Programme: *Excerpts from Bournonville's Napoli and Flower Festival at Genzano, in beautiful traditional costumes designed by Gary Harris. Part of the RNZB's repertoire since the 1950s, these are true classics sure to delight young and old alike. *Flames of Paris pas de deux - a virtuoso show-stopper for dancers at the top of their game, a favourite in ballet galas worldwide. *Fairy Doll pas de trois - a beautiful doll comes to life in a magical toyshop, an enchanting miniature from 19th century Vienna. *Nae Regrets - RNZB Artistic Director Patricia Barker is excited to introduce this work by young US choreographer Brian Enos to New Zealand audiences in 2019. Nae Regrets blends Scottish folk music with techno rhythms to create a new soundscape.

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.
