Gareth Farr Smashing Sweet Vixen

Smashing Sweet Vixen

Gareth has been commissioned to write a twenty minute ballet for the Royal New Zealand Ballet Company, to be premiered in 2015 as part of the company’s centenary commemorations of the Gallipoli landings.

Gareth will be working with Kiwi choreographer Andrew Simmons, and the score will be performed live by the New Zealand Army Band around the country.

This will be Gareth’s third ballet for the RNZB; Smashing Sweet Vixen (choreographed by Shona McCullagh, music performed by Strike) premiered in 1998, and The Wedding (choreographed by Mark Baldwin, music performed by the APO and the NZSO) premiered in 2006.
