The Royal New Zealand Ballet is delighted to present a national tour of New Zealand dance icon Russell Kerr’s classic production of Swan Lake as the centrepiece of our 60th birthday year.

Considered the greatest of all classical ballets, Swan Lake is a perfect synthesis of music and dance. We are excited to be able to present this important revival with the support of colleagues from the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (Wellington), the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra (Christchurch) and the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (Auckland).

With Tchaikovsky’s sweeping score - lush, romantic, instantly recognisable - and Kristian Fredrikson’s opulent designs, Swan Lake transports the audience from ballroom to lakeside. You’ll be caught up in the unfolding tragedy and exalt as the dancers bring every nuance of their characters alive through ballet at its most illuminating.

Birthday celebrations:
The matinee performance of Swan Lake at the St James Theatre on Sunday 21 July 2013 will be a focal point for the RNZB’s 60th birthday celebrations. Former members of the company, together with supporters past and present, are warmly invited to purchase tickets for this performance. Further details of events will follow closer to the time; to receive advance information please email birthday@nzballet.org.nz or sign up at www.nzballet.org.nz/60th.
