Bal­let tour in Pu­taruru

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

The Royal New Zealand Bal­let is to per­form in Pu­taruru in March.

The show at The Plaza is part of the com­pany’s Tower Tu­tus on Tour se­ries of shows.

Tu­tus on Tour is the Royal New Zealand Bal­let’s op­por­tu­nity to share what they do with as many New Zealan­ders as pos­si­ble.

Ev­ery two years the com­pany di­vides in half and one group heads south and the other north.

Over the fol­low­ing six weeks the two groups per­form in more than 40 towns and cities.

Each per­for­mance in­cludes two shows. In 2011 these are Pinoc­chio and clas­si­cal bal­let in the form of the Verdi Vari­a­tions.

Pinoc­chio is an in­ter­pre­ta­tion, aimed at fam­i­lies, of the clas­sic Pinoc­chio story about a wooden pup­pet who wishes to be a real boy.

The Verdi Vari­a­tions fea­tures more of a clas­si­cal bal­let style with tra­di­tional tu­tus and sev­eral solo and duet per­for­mances.

Tick­ets to the Royal New Zealand Bal­let per­for­mance are al­ready avail­able.
