25 years ago, cinemagoers around the world were captivated by Jane Campion’s extraordinary tale of desire, violence and hope. The story of Ada McGrath and her
daughter Flora, husband Alastair and lover Baines unfolded against the wild grandeur and desolation of Aotearoa.
Drawing on the rich inspiration of The Piano, the Royal New Zealand Ballet is honoured to stage the world premiere of this new full-length dance work by Jiří Bubeníček. Originally
conceived as a short work for Dortmund Ballet is now re-imagined and expanded for the RNZB, giving Ada’s story a new and distinctively New Zealand voice and, in dance, a powerful new means of expression.
