An Audience With Pam Ayres


Pam Ayres

A unique entertainer, Pam will be performing a selection of new poems and stories, as well as some audience favourites when she returns to New Plymouth this November, nearly 20 years after her last performance back in 1993.


Pam Ayres has been writing, broadcasting and entertaining for over 35 years. Since her very first TV appearance back in 1975, Pam has gone on to appear in major TV shows, has had her own TV series, regular performances on radio and performed on several occasions for the Queen.


Pam is bringing her one woman solo show to New Plymouth - the only regional venue on her three city tour of New Zealand - and following the show Pam will be signing copies of her autobiography, "The Necessary Aptitiude".


"Forget the corny comedian; Pam is a proper poet, whose wistful, funny, and perspective verse captures both the joy and unfairness if life" - Sunday Times

A Festival of Russian Ballet


Russian Ballet

Returning to New Zealand in 2011.... Imperial Russian Ballet Company’s “A Festival of Russian Ballet”.A Festival of Russian Ballet features a diverse and stunning programme in three awe-inspiring acts.


Act One – Don Quixote



Don Quixote was first performed in Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre in 1869. Since then it has been performed all over the world by Russian and International companies. Former Bolshoi soloist and head of the Imperial Russian Ballet Company, Gediminas Taranda, has taken the four acts of the original ballet with its gradual evolution and transformed it into one impetuous act.


Act Two – Bolero



Bolero is a striking and dramatic ballet. Ravel was inspired to create this masterpiece after visiting a large industrial factory. There he noticed the slow regular movement of the assembly lines and the crash of machine and materials. Bolero is regarded as one of the world’s music masterpieces.


Act Three – Highlights from the world’s great ballets including Giselle, Carmen, The Dying Swan and Le Corsaire. Also in Act Three, Gopak and Ne Me Quittes Pas, Can Can Surprise The Imperial Russian Ballet Company have performed this three-hour ballet extravaganza all around the world, thrilling audiences and impressing critics. Richard Mays writing in The Evening Standard wrote:


"Ballet virtuosity stuns audience


An astounding and exhilarating three-hour programme brought most ballet fans to their feet last night. Perhaps the few who remained seated were simply stunned by excess, as this touring ballet treasure trove heaped pleasure upon delight, capping virtuosity with even more outstanding steps, leaps and turns."
