FIREBIRD

WITH PAQUITA ROYAL NEW ZEALAND BALLET, TOURING NATIONALLY FROM 29TH  SEE MORE When it was first performed in 1910, Firebird changed the direction of ballet. The grandeur of Stravinsky’s iconic score created an exotic fairy tale universe full of wild enchantment that was worlds away from the classics of Russian ballet. This new RNZB production reimagines the Firebird for a different time: one in which the natural world is threatened and humanity is staring into the abyss of extinction.

Paquita , balances the ballet ledger with a dazzling display of 19th century Russian classic techniques taking centre stage.
