Four extraordinary works, by inspirational and internationally renowned choreographers, capture the spirit and power of Venus Rising – brightest of stars, herald of the dusk and of the dawn.

Twyla Tharp is one of the world’s greatest living choreographers. In Waterbaby Bagatelles, watch as 27 dancers leap and spin across the stage in an ever-changing ocean of light.

Alice Topp’s award-winning Aurum is inspired by the Japanese art of kintsugi, the practice of mending cracks in ceramics with gold, celebrating the beauty of the broken.

Venus Rising is completed by two new works made specially for the Royal New Zealand Ballet by leading international choreographers. Andrea Schermoly creates a work inspired by the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth and Sarah Foster-Sproull will create her third work for the RNZB, inspired by the baroque ‘La Folia’.
