Three short ballets – one extraordinary experience. Underscored by musical genius Igor Stravinsky, the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s winter season strikes a stylish balance between dance tradition and modern innovation.
A lavish and lively staging of the 100-year-old masterpiece Petrouchka celebrates ballet’s grand heritage. Dance legend Sir Jon Trimmer stars.
Looking to the future is the cutting-edge cool of Satisfied with Great Success, a new work choreographed by expat Kiwi Cameron McMillan with costumes by internationally renowned designer Karen Walker, and Javier De Frutos’ mesmerising Milagros, set to the composer’s most famous ballet score, The Rite of Spring.
With the Vector Wellington Orchestra.
