Royal New Zealand Ballet 2022 Season
60 performances, 13 venues, 2 Arts Festivals and one historic move back to the St James Theatre – there’s a lot to look forward to in 2022. With a programme full of international premieres, timeless clasics and brand-new works from New Zealand’s leading choreographers, welcome to the RNZB’s 2022 Season of Dance.
Tutus on Tour
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.
