More than 40,000 people attend the event each year making it the largest Waitangi Day celebration in the Auck- land region. The event is on Feb- ruary 6, 10am to 6pm, Barry Curtis Park, Chapel Rd, Flat Bush. Pinocchio comes to town Family fare: Antonia Hewitt as the Blue Fairy in the Royal New Zealand Ballet's production of Pinocchio, coming to south Auckland in Tutus on Tour. Tutus on Tour will be dancing their way to south Auckland in March. The Royal New Zealand Ballet will visit Manukau and Papakura on its biennial tour of 40 towns around the country. A highlight this year is Pinocchio, choreographed by former dancer Roby Behan. It s the first children s ballet they ve taken on tour and will be a real crowd pleaser , general manager Amanda Skoog says. We ve always done a series of smaller pieces on this tour. But we decided it would be nice to give heartland New Zealand a chance to see what a full show looks like from the sets to costumes and props. For classical ballet lovers, there s the premiere of ballet master Greg Horsman s Verdi Variations, paying homage to tra- ditional Russian ballet. The ballet company is divided for Tutus on Tour, with one group of 50 people touring the North Island and the other the South Island. Production manager Andrew Lees says the range of venues from town halls to school gymnasiums poses a huge logistical challenge. We literally have to take everything with us -- from sewing machines for last- minute alterations to flooring for the dancers to perform on. However, the results are always worth it--tobeabletobringwhatwedoto people s doorsteps is a huge honour. Tutus on Tour is on at the Pacific Events Centre in Manukau on March 22 and at Papakura s Hawkins Theatre on March 24. Both shows start at 7.30pm. See www.nzballet.org.nz for ticket details.
