Uncompromised Magic

The Royal New Zealand Ballet performed Angelina Ballerina’s Big Audition, which featured ballet, hip hop, contemporary dance, tap dancing and “a little bit of magic”, at Sydney’s State Theatre in January. “Children know whether something is good or not,” managing director of the company Amanda Skoog said. “Just because it is designed for preschool children, doesn’t mean you can compromise on the quality,” Skoog said. She said the production, which follows a mouse who tries out for the prestigious Camembert Academy, will be the first time many children have experienced “a little piece of theatre”. So, it has to be “absolutely right”. Angelina Ballerina’s Big Audition tours New Zealand between March and May.
