Tutus on Tour

The Royal New Zealand Ballet's much-loved regional touring programme returns to Oamaru. Tutus on Tour is a fantastic opportunity to see your critically-acclaimed national ballet company performing highlights from their extensive repertoire, including classical and contemporary favourites and new works.

TUTUS ON TOUR PROGRAMME

Raymonda Pas de Dix

Marius Petipa's Raymonda, first staged in St Petersburg in 1898, is rarely seen in its entirety. The third act, from which the Pas de Dix is taken, is a wedding celebration for the heroine Raymonda and the noble Jean de Brienne. Featuring four couples and a principal pair, this is a wonderful opportunity for the dancers to display their classical technique and artistry.

'Meet the Swan'

'Meet the Swan' is a stylish, witty, contemporary excerpt from one of ballet's most beloved stories, Swan Lake. Slovak choreographer Mário Radacovský's full-length work Black & White, transforms one of ballet's greatest love stories of innocence and betrayal into a creative, provocative and powerful Swan Lake of our times. 'Meet the Swan', with original music from Act II of Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, brings a new perspective to Siegfried's first encounter with the Swan as she reveals herself to be a beautiful woman cursed by an evil magician.

The Long and the Short of It

Aussie/Kiwi choreographer Loughlan Prior, RNZB Choreographer in Residence and a member of the company since 2010, created The Long and the Short of It in 2017. It is an attempt at deconstructing a daydream, from the dreamer's point of view. The work begins with Sir Jon Trimmer sitting ever so peacefully, before his mind begins to travel away to a place filled with colourful and mischievous characters.
