“Kristian was a creative genius whose breathtakingly beautiful work took audiences to another world. He’s the ballet designer in New Zealand and Australia who everyone has looked to for his knowledge, skill and experience. His work is rich and layered with real depth, quality and class”.

Gary Harris, Artistic Director, Royal New Zealand Ballet, 2005

"The world will be a little less beautiful now that we don’t have Kristian to redesign it for us.”

David McAllister AM, Artistic Director, The Australian Ballet, 2005
