Works by George Balanchine, William Firsythe and Andrea Schermoly

George Balanchine;s Serenade is one of the few ballets that can truly be held iconic. Conceived in 1934, it is american Ballet's founding document, the foundation on which all ;ater works must stnad ande against whivh thery will be judged.
28 dancers are transported by Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings, moving through time and space in perfect patterns, architectual yet organic, supremely structered yet somehow free. Serenade has an inner light, a tranquillity and a deeply felt emotion that has spoken to generations of dancers and audiences. More than 40 years after it was first staged by the company, the royal New Zealand Ballet is privileged to bring Serenade back to our theatres

Serenade is all moonlight; William Forsthe's Artifact II is a blast of neon and strobe.

Created in 1984, the year that Forsythe became Artistic Director of ballet Frnafurt, the full-length Artifact Ii is the second act, was Forsu=ythe announcing humself as a distinctive new voice in ballet. Serenade was Blanchine taking the aura of Russian classicism to his adopted home in the New World, 50 year later, Forsythe blew the cobwebs off European ballet - with prmary colour, Bach spliced with electronics, and a larger than life Amrican athleticism>

Co,pleting the line-up is a commissioned work by Andrea Schemoly, Stand to Reason, first seen in 2018 as opart of the Royal new Zealand Ballet's Wellington-only Strength & Grace programme, celebrating female suffrage. The work is based on the pamphlet, Ten Reasons Why a woman Sould Vote published in 1888, in which women had to justify their ringt to political participation. Stand to Reason celebrates the boldness of the brave women who won the vote in new Zealand.

Vegas Nocturne by Spiegelworld

Ross Mollison's Spiegelworld is operating from the new social club Rose.Rabbit.Lie. at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Reinventing the oncept of the immense supper clubg of a bygone era, the venue combines bar, restaurant, nightclub and tickets show all under the one roof and into one evening's experience for those patrons who choose to go to it.
|Celeberities walking the red carpet at the weekend's grand opening included Neil Patrick Harris and Australia's own Human Nature who have a resident show in Las Vegas.
The anchor ticketed entertainment at the club is Vegas Nocturne, created by Spiegelworld and directed by former Sydney Theatre Company director Wayne Harrison. Each night an epic seven hours of material unfolds, involving 38 performers from around the world. No two patrons can possibly witness the same thing. Other Australians on the creative team include Academy-winning costume designer Angus Strathie and choreographers Dein Perry, Gideon Obarzanek and Lucas Newland.
Visitors to Rose Rabbit,Lie. first enter an octagonal, mansion-like antechamber with eight doors each leading to different places. This id the opulent home of debonair millionaire Alfonsono Buzukhov and his crass sister Beverly, their servants and a host of eccentric characters. Whether you choose to order a craft cocktail in the study where old 45s can be played on a record player, or sit sown to dinner in the libgrary there is always something unexpected going on around you.
One dining area offers a "backstage" view of the big room's show where sofa's, chairs and VIP boxes circle the dtage and bars line each side wall.
The 8pm performance or 'canto' of Vegas Nocturne is a 90-minute revue of neo-vaudeville and acrobatics that radically extends on the concepts of Spiegelworld's acclaimed spiegeltent shows.
Ross Mollison for Vegas Nocturne, had assembled some of the world's greatest artists including Captain Frodo, David O'Mer (Bath Boy) and Piff the Magic Dragon as well as acrobats, contortionists, singers, beat-boxers, tap dancers, fire breathers and comic actor.
At 10pm the seating is reduced from 500 to 200, and the show is short term with different content. At midnight it's shorter still, seueing into a riotuous dance club enviroment with a DJ as the wall panels open up, unifying the different into more of a single space.
