The Royal New Zealand Ballet will travel the country on its two-yearly Tower Tutus on Tour. Between February and April, both cities and smaller towns around New Zealand will get to see dancers in smaller productions, including children’s ballet Pinocchio (choreographed by former dancer Toby Behan) and Verdi Variations (choreographed by ballet master Greg Horsman). Verdi Variations, set to music by Verdi, the tutus are hand-made by the RNZB wardrobe department.
   The Royal New Zealand Ballet company is divided into two groups, one travelling the North Island and the other the South Island. Venues include community theatres and school gymnasiums.
   Production manager Andrew Lees mentions that they have to take sewing machines for last-minute alterations, and flooring.
   More information can be found on the RNZB’s website,
