Chicago the Musical

13 Sep 2018 (Thu) - 24 Sep 2018 (Mon)

The Opera House, 111 - 113 Manners Street, Wellington

A nightclub singer, a double-murderess, a smooth-talking lawyer and a cell block of sin... so the story unfolds in the award-winning Broadway and West End musical Chicago, which comes to New Zealand in August 2018 and opens at The Civic in Auckland before moving to the Opera House in Wellington in September.
Winner of six Tonys, two Oliviers, one Grammy, two Baftas and six Academy Awards, plus thousands of standing ovations, Chicago is the longest-running musical revival in Broadway history and truly is “The sharpest, slickest show on the block” (The Times, UK).

Chicago has everything that makes Broadway and the West End great – a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz; one show-stopping song after another, including Razzle Dazzle, Cell Block Tango and All That Jazz; the sexiest, most sensational dancing; and a sharply sophisticated set which incorporates the 11-piece orchestra.

It’s no surprise that this devilishly delicious musical has brought cheering audiences to their feet all around the world, from Mexico City to Moscow, from Sao Paulo to South Africa. An estimated 31 million people have seen Chicago, which has played over 30,000 performances worldwide.

Set in the Prohibition-era 1920s, Chicago is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer with ambitions of Vaudeville stardom, who maliciously murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her.

Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.

Chicago is a stunning spectacle full of social satire, intrigue, love, betrayal, rivalry and friendship, a pageant of music and dance that adroitly shifts between reality and fantasy, as Roxie Hart’s world moves from prison to the courtroom to the stage.

Bill Bailey – Earl of Whimsy

1 Oct 2018 (Mon) - 2 Oct 2018 (Tue)

Michael Fowler Centre, 111 Wakefield Street, Wellington

After the 2016 sell-out tour, Larks in Transit, the UK’s very own straggle-haired polymath, Bill Bailey, returns to New Zealand with his new comedy and music extravaganza, Earl of Whimsy.
It has Bill’s trademark blend of satire and surrealism, stories and dismantled jokes, crowd sing-alongs, weird instruments and musical showstoppers. But there’s a distinctly historical feel to this show. With its tales of Britain’s fortunes past and present, of ancient Viking battles, of Shakespeare’s contribution to comedy, and Bill’s own ancestry, this is both a mockery and a celebration of national identity.

New Zealand Opera presents La bohème

4 Oct 2018 (Thu) - 13 Oct 2018 (Sat)

The Opera House, 111 - 113 Manners Street, Wellington

A lost key and an accidental touch of cold hands in the dark; so begins one of the great romances of all opera. Puccini’s glorious masterpiece of youth, passionate love and heartbreak springs to life in this exciting new production by Jacqueline Coats.
La bohème features the return of some of the most brilliant young New Zealand singers on the international stage, including UK-based Thomas Atkins, Marlena Devoe and Julien Van Mellaerts, along with Amelia Berry and Australian Nicholas Lester. Tobias Ringborg, who was last in New Zealand for Tosca in 2015, returns to conduct another of Puccini’s great operas.

Whether it’s your first time or your fiftieth, La bohème will remind you what it means to be alive and in love.
