Don Quixote opens the Royal New Zealand Ballet’s 2015 season

The Royal New Zealand Ballet opens its 2015 season in March with Don Quixote, marking its first production under the company’s new artistic director Francesco Ventriglia.
   The sets and costumes have been conceived by former artistic director and designer Gary Harris, whose prior work for the RNZB included The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty, with choreography by Adrian Burnett after Marius Petipa.
   This version of the classic ballet, set in Barcelona, was first seen at the end of 2008 and is known as a vibrant, effervescent take, set to the music of Ludwig Minkus, conducted by Nigel Gaynor. Sir Jon Trimmer had the lead role in the earlier production.
   Ventriglia said in a release, ‘I’m very happy that in my first season I can push our young talented dancers to rise to the challenge that this ballet presents to combine brilliant balletic technique with the great acting ability. The dancers have a superb story to tell and they will give it their all.’
   The story follows the ageing Don Quixote and his young nephew Sancho, as they aid the two lovers, the beautiful Kitri and the penniless Basilio, while dealing with the villainous Gamache, and Kitri’s pretentious father.
   Don Quixote opens at the St James Theatre in Wellington on March 4, touring until April 1 to Christchurch, Invercargill, Dunedin, Auckland and Palmerston North. More details can be found at www.rnzb.org.nz.
   The following season sees Salute, a collaboration between the Royal New Zealand Ballet, the New Zealand Army Band, and Dwayne Bloomfield, Gareth Farr, Neil Ieremia and Andrew Simmons, commemorating the centenary of World War I.

From top The Stoneleigh pop-up bar at the Auckland stopover of the Volvo Ocean Race. Scenes at sea over the weekend during the Volvo Ocean Race: from the all-women Team SCA, where Sam Davies and crew sail past a traditional Vietnamese fishing boat; and on board Dongfeng Race Team.

When the Volvo Ocean Race hits Auckland, Stoneleigh will host a pop-up garden bar from February 27 to March 15.
   The bar will be located at Te Wero Island on the Auckland Viaduct, and Stoneleigh will serve its Latitude wines from Marlborough’s Golden Mile, complemented by food from Masu restaurant.
   It will open from 11.30 a.m. to 10 p.m. during this period.
   â€˜We’re thrilled to be associated with such a highly anticipated event,’ said Stoneleigh winemaker, Jamie Marfell. ‘The Auckland stopover of the 2014–15 Volvo Ocean Race is being held in a superb location and we look forward to taking in all of the in-port action.’

While most eyes tend to be on the Oscars, the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards always present a wonderful glimpse at red-carpet looks as well as an insight as to who the favourites for Hollywood’s upcoming big night might be.
   There was plenty of colour this year on the red carpet with Keira Knightley in a purple Erdem Moralioglu gown, showing off her baby bump, and Camila Alves wore a similar shape with her Donna Karan gown.
   Plunging necklines were also spotted on the red carpet, as Sarah Hyland walked in her Vera Wang design, Emilia Clarke in Donna Karan, and Jennifer Aniston in a vintage John Galliano—showing you don’t need something from the last couple of seasons to make an impact.
   Rosamund Pike wore a ruffled blue Christian Dior, and Julianna Margulies wowed in blue, too, donning a design from Giambattista Valli Couture.
   Red still made a startling statement for Edie Falco in Randi Rahm, Kaley Cuoco in Romona Keveza, and SofĂ­a Vergara in Donna Karan (complete with a sizeable engagement ring).
   Emma Stone wore a black tuxedo gown by Dior, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus belied her 54 years in a stunning Monique Lhuillier design.
   Showing that every colour was present, in green were Julianne Moore in Givenchy, Patricia Arquette in a draped, off-the-shoulder emerald dress, and Claire Danes in an olive Marc Jacobs number.
   Uzo Aduba contrasted with bright yellow, and Reese Witherspoon wore a white Giorgio Armani gown with sequin detailing. Maggie Gyllenhaal chose white, too, in a crĂȘpe gown by Thakoon Panichgul, also with a plunging neckline.
   Finally, Tatiana Maslany, in Oscar de la Renta, and Lupita Nyong’o, in Elie Saab, showed that they weren’t afraid of stripes as they headed down the red carpet.
   Birdman was the winner of the night among the motion picture awards, taking the Outstanding Performance by a Cast award, while Eddie Redmayne won best actor for The Theory of Everything and Julianne Moore won best actress for Still Alice. Supporting wins went to J. K. Simmons for Whiplash and Patricia Arquette for Boyhood.
   In the television section, Downton Abbey won for drama, and Orange Is the New Black for comedy. Drama’s top acting awards went to Kevin Spacey for House of Cards and Viola Davis for How to Get Away with Murder; comedy’s best actor was William H. Macy for the US remake of Shameless and Uzo Aduba, giving an emotional speech, for Orange Is the New Black.
   In the TV movie and miniseries category, Mark Ruffalo was the best actor for his performance in The Normal Heart, while Frances McDormand was best actress for Olive Kitteridge.

GBK and Pilot Pens take off with their 2015 Golden Globes’ extravaganza

When Gavin Keilly calls a party, A-list celebrities and press show up, rain or shine, especially when the food is delicious, the goodies are stylish and functional, and the charities are truly doing some worthwhile things to make the world a better place. Once again, GBK’s Golden Globes’ suite took place in the ballrooms of the W Hotel Hollywood with an international array of covetable goodies and worthy causes.
   World Vision is best known for their infomercials and work to benefit children in developing countries through fundraisers and holistic community development programmes. At this event, they went above and beyond timely to present a programme that provides unusual way for groups to give back: a group- or team-building activity involving the assemblage of ebola kits for workers in stricken areas. They also offered hand-crafted tote bags from Thailand whose manufacture benefits rural communities.
   Lambda Legal continued their work advancing civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and those with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy advocacy. Yes! Beat Liver Tumors continued to get their message out about providing information, resources and support for people affected by cancer in its advanced stages. Citizen E-Cig, meanwhile, was on hand to help with the cause of encouraging people to quit smoking for the sake of the environment at large and their own personal health with their classy line of e-cigs.
   You could say the fashion offerings were quite “crafty” this go around, and not only because Artisan Group was back with some beautiful one-off pieces on display. The ladies of Samiah Fine Clothing encouraged guests to express their inner rock star through trying on their bespoke jackets and coats, and sending them on their way with hand-made brocade shoulder bags. Sledge USA was all about team spirit with its forthcoming Major League Baseball collection (I was partial to the Chicago-related gear), stunning contemporary silver and brass pieces from Westland Jewelry, a gift card from Canada-based Beyond the Rack (which allows us to select something we really want or need-genius!), empowerment-themed jewels from BraveChick.com and some Canadian-made, chic-yet-homespun hats from Canada Bliss.
   Smart items for the avid traveller included elegantly crafted totes, laptop bags and tablet cases from Solo from their upcoming spring collection, a three-night stay at Puerto Vallarta Beach Club in a private, spacious three-bedroom villa, feather-light headphones in jazzy colours from LG Electronics and the new H2V Eye-tox 3 serum from Burke Williams and a Burke Williams Advanced Eye Lift enhancement (much welcome after 18 hour-flights from abroad and red-eye flights from New York). In at-home pampering, VIPs received home spa products and soaps from Beauty Kitchen by Heather Marianna and a full set of Sheex bedding fashioned from performance fabrics.
   At this suite, nobody went home hungry, with the presence of GBK regulars Barrys Gourmet Brownies and Sabra savouries. Newcomers included Cupcake Fusion LA, a bakery known for delightful and whimsical combinations of sweet and savoury cupcakes, which was on site providing gift cards and cupcakes; kosher sweets from My Candy Basket; and Corazons Custom Catering, a family-owned Filipino business catering yummy Filipino–French snacks and gifting certificates for complimentary food tasting parties. You could wash all this good stuff down with cocktails made with Bare Organic Mixers, which are organic, low-calorie, gluten-free delights made with juice, water, and agave syrup as well as portable and potable Nuvino Wines from South Africa, Argentina, Chile and Australia.
   Pilot Pen not only offered fashionable and exceptional writing instruments, but also a chic Japanese ambiance that covered much of the GBK space, inspired by the centuries-old Japanese art of maki-e. VIPs received the Vanishing Point Fountain Pen, while all guests received FriXion Clicker Erasable Gel Ink Pen 8 Pack Pouch, an entirely new kind of erasable pen that is retractable, has striking good looks and ink that is formulated to write smooth and erase cleanly.—Elyse Glickman, US West Coast Editor
