2013 Celebrating 60 years

nzballet.org.nz


What does dance mean to you? A memory, a moment, a glimpse of a different world?

For anything you can’t express in words, there’s dance. There’s joy, there’s sadness, there’s laughter. There are feelings so rich you can’t begin to describe them until the lights go down, and the dancers take their places.

To celebrate our 60th birthday, we bring you a family portrait, featuring dancers from the RNZB in costumes from productions from the past 60 years, shot in the Poul Gnatt studio on 7 August 2012.

Welcome to the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s 2013 Season. Celebrating 60 years.

From the Directors AMANDA SKOOG, MANAGING DIRECTOR What a pleasure it has been to see the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s 60th birthday season taking shape. ETHAN STIEFEL, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR I am proud to introduce the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s 2013 Season, my second since becoming the company’s Artistic Director. Over the last year the RNZB has enjoyed record audiences for both new and traditional repertory, and we are excited to be moving forward together, making new work and taking the RNZB throughout New Zealand and, with our return to China in 2013, to the world. I am delighted to welcome choreographers Andrew Simmons and Javier de Frutos back to New Zealand to create new works for the triple bill that opens the season. We are honoured that Russell Kerr, New Zealand’s most distinguished dance maker and director, will once again stage his Swan Lake for the company. It is for many the quintessential ballet and I cannot think of a better way of marking our 60th birthday than by putting a truly classic work, and one which will elevate the company in every way, centre stage. We close the year with Tutus on Tour—taking the RNZB out on the road to 46 communities around New Zealand. It’s a reminder of the company’s roots, but also a chance to reflect on just how far we’ve come. I know that this unique opportunity to travel throughout my adopted country is going to give me new perspectives on the RNZB’s place in New Zealand, and on the power of dance to transform, inspire, and to move. I hope that you will join me.

Milestones such as this are an opportunity to take stock. It is both humbling, and inspiring, to see how far the RNZB has travelled in its 60 years. The sheer number of miles clocked up each year gives pause for thought, but it is artistic growth, financial security and the ever-increasing interest and support of New Zealanders of all ages that is the greater measure. On behalf of the company, I would like to thank all our funders and sponsors for their confidence in our work, and the practical support that they so generously provide. The Ministry for Culture and Heritage, Te Manatū Taonga, our National Sponsor TelstraClear and Season Sponsors TOWER and Meridian Energy, together with our other sponsors, are a vital part of the RNZB family. Their contribution is the bedrock on which all our work is built. The commitment of The Lion Foundation, Pub Charity and many other trusts and foundations, enables us to present our flourishing Dance Explorer education programme, and to continue to perform in communities throughout New Zealand. I would especially like to thank the Friends of the Royal New Zealand Ballet and our many individual donors through the Dress Circle and our Partner a Dancer programme. Their enlightened support, interest and enthusiasm, is worthy of the greatest applause. Happy 60th birthday RNZB, and I look forward to seeing you at the ballet.

Made to Move THREE BRAND NEW WORKS THAT CELEBRATE THE JOY OF DANCE

Royal New Zealand Ballet Artistic Director Ethan Stiefel creates his first original work for the RNZB, a spirited comedy set in a Bavarian beer hall. Expect laughter, lederhosen and virtuoso technique, as the whole company take up their steins and whirl away to the waltzes and polkas of Johann Strauss II. Former RNZB dancer Andrew Simmons, Christchurch-born and now living and working in Dresden, creates the eagerly-awaited follow-up to 2010’s haunting A Song in the Dark, a hit with audiences around New Zealand and with dance lovers in the UK and France on the company’s 2011 tour. Drawing on New Zealand’s wide open landscapes and set to the gentle minimalism of music by Dustin O’Halloran, Ludovico Einaudi and Olafur Arnalds, this new work promises to be a very special experience for dancers and audience alike. Venezuelan choreographer Javier de Frutos, choreographer of the RNZB’s award-winning Milagros (2003), The Celebrated Soubrette (2004) and Banderillero (2006) creates a new piece inspired by the Pacific. In the ten years since he first worked with the RNZB, De Frutos has continued to make dance works to both critical and popular acclaim around the world. His choreography for the 2007 West End production of Cabaret received an Olivier Award, London theatre’s highest accolade, and his recent collaboration with Pet Shop Boys, The Most Incredible Thing, enjoyed two sell-out seasons at London’s Sadler’s Wells. He continues to challenge the boundaries between the worlds of ballet, contemporary dance and musicals.

Production photos from the 2006 revival of Swan Lake with costumes by Kristian Fredrikson.

THE TELSTRACLEAR SEASON OF

Swan Lake 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) 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.

The Royal New Zealand Ballet 1953 – 2013

The Royal New Zealand Ballet at Sixty ‘Time and again we

The Royal New Zealand Ballet is a versatile company of 34 dancers. Bringing together performers of nine different nationalities and from many schools and traditions, the RNZB is proud to offer New Zealanders the opportunity to see ballet and dance of an exceptionally high standard, in their home towns. We tour regularly from Auckland to Invercargill and visit communities as diverse as Twizel, Te Anau, Kerikeri, Whakatane and Hawera through the biennial TOWER Tutus on Tour season. The company which became the New Zealand Ballet was formed in 1953 by Royal Danish Ballet Principal Dancer Poul Gnatt. Early days of touring embodied the New Zealand pioneering spirit. Performing night in night out, company members unloaded and repacked the sets, rigged the lights and ironed the costumes, with local community members providing accommodation. The spirit of those days survives, and the support of the New Zealand public remains. The Royal New Zealand Ballet is an intrinsic part of New Zealand’s national heritage, and has one of the largest followings of all New Zealand performing arts companies. The award of a Royal Charter in 1984, making the RNZB one of just four ballet companies in the Commonwealth to enjoy this privilege, was further proof of the company’s leading place in New Zealand’s cultural life. Today, the Royal New Zealand Ballet has developed a reputation for strong and unique

interpretations of full-length dramatic works, which became a hallmark in the 1980s. To this base have been added the masterworks and major ballets of the 20th century, such as Balanchine's works and the Stravinsky ballets, and the company has an enviable track record in commissioning new works from New Zealand and international choreographers. The embracing of new opportunities through the media and digital technology has brought the Royal New Zealand Ballet to an ever-widening audience, both at home and abroad. The Secret Lives of Dancers, the award-winning TV3 series first aired in 2010, will be filmed for a third series in 2013. This series takes New Zealanders, and a growing international audience, behind the scenes of a professional ballet company and into our dancers’ lives. Our education programme, Dance Explorer, brings the RNZB into classrooms, school halls, dance schools and community centres around New Zealand. The appointment of Ethan Stiefel as Artistic Director in 2011 has raised the national and international profile of the Royal New Zealand Ballet still further. As the company marks its 60th birthday, we do so in good heart, confident of our place in New Zealand and on the world stage.

are reminded of the choreographic gems that over six decades have brought such pleasure, inspiration, and affirmation of New Zealand’s dance talents.’­­

Poul Gnatt. Photographed at Bethells Beach in 1953.

— Jennifer Shennan A new history of the RNZB, The Royal New Zealand Ballet at Sixty, edited by Jennifer Shennan and Anne Rowse, with Keith McEwing, is to be published by Victoria University Press. The book will be launched as part of the company’s 60th birthday celebrations in July 2013. Contributions by major figures from the company’s history will be accompanied by illustrations drawn from photographic collections in the Alexander Turnbull Library, where many of the company’s records are archived. Also included will be a comprehensive index of the company’s repertory over the last 60 years.

Royal New Zealand Ballet Dance Explorer SUPPORTING DANCE EXPLORER

Dance Explorer gives New Zealanders of all ages the opportunity to discover, learn and enjoy more about the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s work.

At performances—look out for Warm Up, Curtain Up! events before performances in all centres: the chance to see the dancers warming up for the show, as well as final technical preparations onstage. Question and answer sessions with dancers are often arranged after matinees, and special forum events may be organised ahead of new productions.

For dancers—aspiring dancers throughout New Zealand have the opportunity to learn alongside the RNZB and to be inspired by visiting teachers and company members. An active mentor programme, dedicated Ballet for Boys classes and open classes for ballet students at all stages of their dance education offer students valuable insights into life in a professional ballet company.

For schools—Dance Explorer educators can work with students in tailor-made, curriculumlinked workshops, exploring repertory from current productions. Sessions can range from an intensive hour to an extended involvement with a school lasting several months. Resources for teachers are available online, supporting the curriculum, offering fun activities and introducing students to the world of professional performing arts. The annual Ballet in a Box programme takes RNZB dancers into schools for mini performances and interactive workshops, inspiring thousands of students each year.

For the community—keep an eye out for special ‘Day in the Life’ events as the Royal New Zealand Ballet takes dancers, costumes and a little bit of magic to venues outside the company’s regular touring circuit.
