Be in to win a weekend escape to Christchurch with the Royal New Zealand Ballet.

BRAVE. BRIGHT. BEAUTIFUL. BOLD MOVES.

Choreographers from three continents share New Zealand stages this winter in Bold Moves: in George Balanchine’s Serenade 26 dancers move through time and space, supremely structured yet somehow free; William Forsythe’s Artifact II delivers Bach spliced with electronica; Stand to Reason by Andrea Schermoly – drama, drive, pulsating beauty – is a powerful commissioned work celebrating the boldness of the brave women who won the vote. To celebrate this new production, the RNZB and North & South will be giving one lucky reader a weekend to remember!

The prize:

  • Flights for two to Christchurch.
  • A night at a Quest Christchurch apartment in the centre of town.
  • Dinner and drinks at O. G. B. Bar.
  • Pre-show bubbles at the theatre.
  • Plus, premium seats to see Bold Moves at the Isaac Theatre Royal, on Saturday, 7 September, 2019.

Entries close 15 July, 2019 at midnight.
