Kupe: New Zealand Festival Opening Night

23 Feb 2018 (Fri)

Wellington Waterfront, Wellington

As dusk falls, join a cast of thousands on Wellington’s stunning waterfront for the once-in-a-lifetime 2018 New Zealand Festival opening night event, Kupe, a new work by Anna Marbrook, Hoturoa Barclay-Kerr and Kasia Pol.
Inspired by the great explorer and navigator Kupe’s arrival in Aotearoa, this free, whānau-friendly spectacular is a landmark celebration of our shared voyaging history.

Be a part of history in the making, as we welcome a majestic waka fleet including seven ocean-faring waka hourua* and their fearless crew, as they sail across the waters of Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington Harbour – a moving finale to their months’-long journey from Samoa, the Cook Islands and around New Zealand.

Then let the sounds of the Pacific surround you in this theatrical extravaganza featuring performers, mass choir, a thousand-strong haka, and a musical score by Warren Maxwell (Trinity Roots, Little Bushman).

A must-do for Moana fans, Kupe sparks a week-long celebration of our place in the Pacific, including a Petone beach party for all the whānau and more.

Grizzly Bear

3 Mar 2018 (Sat) - 4 Mar 2018 (Sun)

The Opera House, 111 - 113 Manners St, Te Aro, Wellington

Grizzly Bear are the cult band’s cult band and are in Wellington exclusively for two shows only.
Grizzly Bear are the cult band’s cult band and are in Wellington exclusively for two shows only.

Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold proclaimed one of their releases “the best record of the Noughties”. Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood declared them “my favourite band in the world”.

For once, such glowing praise seems justified. Across five albums, this Brooklyn quartet has explored a dreamy, deeply psychedelic sound that’s equal parts chamber music, rock, electronic effects and baroque Americana.

Offering sonic surprises galore, they regularly reduce their live audiences to tears of joy. A song that starts out painfully intimate, as if recorded in a phone booth, might end up as a “cast of thousands” affair.

While the soaring voices of chief songwriters Ed Droste and Dan Rossen are interspersed with unexpected sounds – crackling fires, whispering voices flickering through the mix.

After a five-year sabbatical exploring the alternative worlds of high-end cuisine, the US campaign trail and fatherhood, they return to the stage, touring their latest album Painted Ruins. Grab your chance to submerge yourself in the Grizzly Bear sound.

Star Wars: A New Hope In Concert

10 Mar 2018 (Sat) - 11 Mar 2018 (Sun)

TSB Bank Arena, Queens Wharf, Wellington

The Oscar-winning music from Star Wars has been closely guarded for 40 years. Now, as an absolute treat for New Zealand fans, the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra will perform the music of Star Wars: A New Hope for a live screening of the original film.
Soaring trumpets blare over the movie’s opening moments: “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away ...” Seared into the minds of generations of wonder-struck children (and adults), the music of Star Wars is central to the film’s captivating charm and popularity.

Composer John Williams’ spectacular symphonic soundtrack was named the greatest film score of all time by the American Film Institute – and is arguably the most recognisable piece of orchestral music of the 20th century.

Few orchestras around the world will have this opportunity. Few fans either. This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience the full power of this finely tuned, “fully operational” orchestra bringing Star Wars to life as never before. Grab your popcorn, put on your favourite Star Wars costume and be whisked away to another galaxy.
