"Hansel and Gretel is a wonderful production with imaginative choreography and a creative team at the top of their game."
- The Dominion Post
"A candy-coated witch world for the RNZ Ballet's richly layered and extremely rewarding Hansel & Gretel - its new ballet which should be devoured by the world." - New Zealand Herald
"From the moment it opens, Hansel & Gretel is a rich and delightful production. Prior has worked deliberately to utilise every available production element to conjure a world that the audience are invited into." - Theatre Scenes
"Hansel & Gretel is a true return to form for the Royal New Zealand Ballet, and its best holiday-season family ballet in years" - Lucire
"Bursting with unique artistry, surrealism, and dexterous humour"
