Royal New Zealand Ballet

Four extraordinary works, by inspirational and internationally renowned choreographers, capture the spirit and power of Venus Rising – brightest of stars, herald of the dusk and of the dawn. Twyla Tharp is one of the world’s greatest living choreographers. In Waterbaby Bagatelles, 27 dancers leap and spin across the stage in an ever-changing ocean of light; the music flowing seamlessly as groups of dancers sparkle and glow.

Based in Wellington, the Royal New Zealand Ballet (RNZB) is a company of dynamic dancers from diverse backgrounds, performing a broad repertoire for audiences at home and abroad, whilst continuing to build a style that is unique to Aotearoa. Since June 2017, the company has been under the artistic direction of Patricia Barker.
