In Her (in cinemas at present) Joaquin Phoenix falls in love with his computer operating system; on stage the Royal New Zealand Ballet takes on automaton love with a NZ tour of Coppélia. To coincide we pointe a spotlight on things ballet-related, including a 1983 performance of the mistaken identity classic for Charles and Di (8.30 clip one). Other archive gems include: Ballet in New Zealand (1963), Our Stars of Ballet (1960); Sir Jon Trimmer acting up as The Fire Raiser; Petrouchka (1993) in full, and a trailer for Toa Fraser’s 2013 Giselle doco.
