The Royal New Zealand Ballet is providing an audio described matinee performance of the Hansel and Gretel Ballet Season on Saturday 9 November at the Opera House.

The ballet audio description is done live by an experienced describer through head sets that will be given to you at the venue. There is also a pre-show Ballet Touch Tour from 11.30am to 12.30pm, giving a behind-the-scenes tour and introduction to the work and terminology.

How much are the tickets?
The audio described seats are offered at a very discounted flat rate (excl. service fees):

Adults: $40 per person (Companion is free)

Children: $24 per child

Touch tour: free

Please note: these seats will not necessarily be at the front and most likely to be in the stalls closer to the rear in each venue. We understand this may not be best for all low-vision patrons. The ballet cannot offer higher priced seating with this deal. If you choose to purchase a higher reserved price ticket separately, you can then request directly to Pascale Parenteau (email or phone 021 678 521) for the option of securing a head set for the audio description. Please note we cannot guarantee a head set with this option but we will try.

To book phone 09 970 9745

When you book, state you wish to attend the audio described performance, how many head sets you require, if you have a guide dog and if you are attending the touch tour. Further information will be sent to you from the ballet, so you will need to leave your phone or email contact with the booking agency.

If you need a companion to accompany you, these seats will be free of charge. You need to confirm when you are booking if you have a companion.
