Last Auckland Fringe Festival, the Wet Hot Beauties presented the first water ballet in New Zealand in over fifty years. This Fringe, the 1930s styled ballerinas of the deep are back. Following on from their 2011 sell-out success ‘Sirens’, the Wet Hot Beauties present ‘Swan Song’, a fantastical Swan Lake/Baz Luhrmann-inspired water ballet mash up with their trademark cheeky modern twist.

100 tutus flock to the water in a romantic and epic tale of star crossed lovers, dark magic and water fowl at the historic Parnell Baths. Eternal love. Prince and princesses. Dark magic. Girl fights. Water fowl. Love triangles. Love triangles with water fowl. A hilarious water dance party with rocking great moves, this is Auckland's most popular pool-side night-time spectacular.

Featuring an eclectic and dynamic sound track including Tchaikovsky, Shirley Bassey, Calvin Harris, Florence + the Machine, Fat Boy Slim and Prince.

‘Swan Song’ is created by Pip Hall, Judy Dale, Lara Fischel-Chisholm and the Wet Hot Beauties.

Wet Hot Beauties are a fully inclusive, contemporary water ballet community in their fifth season. Past and present whanau sit around 250 and are a widely diverse collection of people. The majority of performers have no formal dance or performance background and join the group to channel their inner water ballerina and participate in an art form that sits outside the box.

Classical ballet just got all pool party on it. Will sell out.

Praise for ‘Sirens’ and the Wet Hot Beauties:

“Before they even dipped a toe in the water this week, the Wet Hot Beauties were the media’s feel-good, sold-out hit of the summer.” - Janet McAllister, NZ Herald .

“Extremely engaging and over all too soon.” - Roxanne de Bruyn, Theatreview.

“The Wet Hot Beauties took over the Parnell Baths, delivering an awe-inspiring visual extravaganza in the water” - James Wenley, Theatre Scenes
