Meridian Customers Get Chance To Don Their Glad-Rags For A Night At The Ballet

Meridian is giving its customers the chance to win a trip to Wellington for the opening night of Don Quixote, the latest production by The Royal New Zealand Ballet.

Meridian has been the national sponsor of The Royal New Zealand Ballet since 1999.

“Meridian is proud to be involved with the Royal New Zealand Ballet. We are delighted to be able to support the dynamic and ground-breaking works from this highly acclaimed and much-loved company,” says Mel Seyfort, Meridian’s Sponsorship Manager.

The Royal New Zealand Ballet’s performance of Don Quixote tells the classic Spanish story of an ageing Don on his final quest for adventure.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer one lucky Kiwi family the chance to come to Wellington and experience a wonderfully performed story of laughter, love, dreams and conquests, accompanied by the amazing music of revered composer Ludwig Minkus,” says Mel Seyfort.

The opening night of Don Quixote is in Wellington on Friday 31 October 2008

The winning family of four will get flights to Wellington, accommodation, breakfast, limousine transfers and tickets to the ballet.

The competition is open to all current Meridian customers, who can enter on-line at 5pm 10 October 2008. The winner will be announced on 13 October 2008.
