Taking place each March, Auckland Arts Festival fills Auckland Live venues with an exceptional line-up of theatre, dance, music, circus and cabaret shows from New Zealand and around the globe.

Auckland Arts Festival 2019 promises a non-stop showcase of New Zealand and international acts spanning opera, theatre, dance, music, circus and cabaret and ranging from the most gloriously classical to the very edge of contemporary. 

Already announced for 2019 is Komische Oper Berlin’s gloriously reimagined production of Mozart’s masterpiece The Magic Flute co-directed by acclaimed opera director Barrie Kosky and Suzanne Andrade from innovative British theatre group 1927, with a 75-strong Berlin opera chorus and soloists. Accompanied by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra.

The full programme for Auckland Arts Festival 2019 will be revealed on Friday 2 November.
