Event Details

Creative Queenstown and Arts on Tour are proud to present


with Helen Moulder and Sir Jon Trimmer

karposvskySylvia once travelled the world and visited its famous ballet theatres. Now she spends time alone in her attic, filled with her daughter’s unwanted possessions and photographs of her favourite ballet dancer, Alexander Karpovsky – she has seen him dance 127 times. One day the silent Karpovsky mysteriously appears and teaches the stumbling Sylvia to dance…and to live.

karp2Originally produced to rapturous response in 2002, Meeting Karpovsky toured New Zealand in 2003/4 and won Listener Best Play and Chapman Tripp Actress of the Year. Following popular demand, it returned to Circa and some North Island centres in 2012 and now returns to tour the whole country with Arts On Tour NZ.

Created by Helen Moulder, Sue Rider and Jon Trimmer with music by Tchaikovsky, Weber, Stravinsky, Adam and Bach.

“Pure magic – together they are magnificent” – The Listener

“This beautiful piece of theatre brings together two extraordinary performers, Helen Moulder and Sir Jon Trimmer, performing a unique pas de deux that interweaves ballet and theatre seamlessly.” –Theatreview
