The Breeze is delighted to invite you to the Royal New Zealand Ballet's rendition of Hansel and Gretel.
Let us set the scene... Faint starlight peeps through the dark forest canopy. It is midnight: the witching hour.
Alone and lost, two hungry children stumble towards a glowing vision of warmth and comfort, an enchanting house made of gingerbread. But all is not as it seems…
Returning for Christmas 2023, the Royal New Zealand Ballet is proud to present the Ryman Healthcare Season of Hansel & Gretel, with delicious choreography by Loughlan Prior and magical music by Claire Cowan. This homegrown classic, a hit from the summer 2019, brings together New Zealand’s most sparkling creative talents to tell a timeless tale for audiences young and old.
Watch below for a little teaser of what awaits you:
