AUCK­LAND CEL­E­BRATES THE ARTS

The Pullman Magazine - - Places And People To Love -

It is New Zealand’s most sig­nif­i­cant cul­tural event and thus an out­stand­ing oc­ca­sion to dis­cover the ar­chi­pel­ago’s abun­dant artis­tic life. From March 8 to 26, 2017, the Auck­land Arts Fes­ti­val has an­nounced a top-notch pro­gram for al­most three weeks of dance, mu­sic, theatre, cabaret, vis­ual art and per­for­mances.

With a num­ber of global pre­mieres among the 50-plus booked acts, lead­ing in­ter­na­tional per­form­ing arts com­pa­nies come here to rub shoul­ders with the cream of New Zealan­der pro­duc­tion. For the open­ing in 2016, the fired-up al­chemists from French com­pany Cara­bosse had lit the Auck­land sky. We bet the 2017 edition will be just as mag­i­cal and we fore­see white nights across the city! It will also be the last with Artis­tic Di­rec­tor Carla van Zon be­hind the wheel, who is pass­ing the ba­ton to Jonathan Biel­ski (for­mer long-time Di­rec­tor of Pro­gram­ming at the Sid­ney Opera House) af­ter six ex­cit­ing years, which have seen the fes­ti­val take on an an­nual pace, while gain­ing a strong rep­u­ta­tion based on in­ter­na­tional merit.
