Event Details

Back by popular demand, join the Royal New Zealand Ballet for special encore performances of Hansel & Gretel, a new two-act ballet that premiered in 2019. This production brought together many of New Zealand’s creative talents with choreography by Loughlan Prior, a specially commissioned score by Claire Cowan, and costume and set designs by internationally renowned designer Kate Hawley.

The cast includes Kirby Selchow and Shaun James Kelly in the title roles, Katharine Precourt as The Ice Cream Witch and Paul Mathews as her monstrous alter ego, The Witch Transformed. Orchestra Wellington are in the pit, under the baton of conductor Hamish McKeich.

The performance lasts one hour and 45 minutes, plus a brief interval between the two acts to make a cup of coffee and grab a slice of gingerbread.

Screening Friday 29 May 7.30pm, Saturday 30 May 1.30pm and Sunday 31 May 10.30am
