The Royal New Zealand Ballet will close out the Joyce Theater's Winter 2014 season with a rep program February 12-16.
The company's debut performances in New York will include Millepied's 28 Variations on a Theme by Paganini, Banderillero by Venezuelan choreographer Javier De Frutos, and Of Days by Andrew Simmons.
Back in November when Haglund first broke the story that the RNZB might visit NYC, he had hopes that the company would bring its spanking brand new Giselle. Unfortunately, it looks like Ethan Stiefel has chosen to pass us by for the new Giselle, although the company will perform it elsewhere in the U.S. on this particular tour, including in Los Angeles. So, gloat-on, L.A. – but, please, not too loudly.
