The Royal New Zealand Ballet’s 2019 season brings together new works, beloved stories and fresh takes on the classics, for a year of inspiring dance. 

Witness a magnificent re-telling of ballet’s most enduring classic Swan Lake, with Black Swan, White Swan, an acclaimed contemporary work by Mário Radačovský.

Bold Moves is our mixed bill programme, featuring two of ballets most iconic works, and a new commissioned piece celebrating the tenacity of the brave women who won the vote in New Zealand. 

We finish the year with a major premiere, The Ryman Healthcare Season of Hansel & Gretel. A timeless favourite for young and old, this is a new 2-act ballet by Loughlan Prior. The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra will perform the newly commissioned score live.

A beautifully trained company
