Event Details

Royal New Zealand Ballet is delighted to share a piece of New Zealand history on Anzac Day

Watch the special broadcast, featuring works drawn from the RNZB’s 2015 collaboration with the New Zealand Army Band (NZAB).

Neil Ieremia’s Passchendale is a work special and unique to the RNZB. The work is named after the Battle of Passchendaele, 12 October 1917, the day on which the New Zealand Division suffered more casualties than on any other day in the First World War, or since. It is inspired by music composed by former NZAB member Dwayne Bloomfield who was born and raised in Timaru. This intensely moving score is performed live by the New Zealand Army Band.

RNZB  are honoured to share it with you again this Anzac Day, with pride, respect, and gratitude to everyone who serves Aotearoa – in uniform and in every profession.

The work will be broadcast 3 times on Anzac Day through Facebook Premiere.

You do not have to have a Facebook account to watch the broadcast and it will be available globally, to those outside Australasia as well.
