Royal New Zealand Ballet presents a special programme of three ballets featuring Aurora’s Wedding, the spectacular final act of The Sleeping Beauty; Christchurch choreographer Andrew Simmons’ critically acclaimed A Song in the Dark, and the Balcony Pas de deux from Romeo & Juliet. Join us for an evening to delight and inspire.
A Song in the Dark
A chance to see this lyrical and fluid piece by Christchurch choreographer Andrew Simmons, one of New Zealand’s brightest emerging talents. Critically acclaimed in the UK earlier this year, A Song in the Dark explores themes of love and missed opportunity set to a haunting score by Philip Glass.

Balcony Pas de Deux from Romeo & Juliet
A performance of the glorious pas de deux from Royal New Zealand Ballet’s Romeo & Juliet.

Aurora’s Wedding from The Sleeping Beauty
The final act of The Sleeping Beauty culminates in the wedding of Princess Aurora and Prince Désiré. In this festive celebration, the King gives the happy couple a pair of magical bluebirds in a golden cage as a wedding present. The joyful couple perform a beautiful and traditional duet, courtiers dance and sing and they all live happily ever after.
