Auckland Arts Festival

11 Mar - 29 Mar

Aotea Centre, Aotea Square, Auckland Town Hall & Bruce Mason Centre

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 set to inspire, provoke and entertain.

A globally recognised celebration of art and culture, Auckland Arts Festival is a place for ambitious ideas by storytellers, provocateurs and creators and reflects our contemporary, cosmopolitan city with its many communities.

Already announced for the 2020 Festival is the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra’s Beethoven 250, part of the worldwide celebrations marking the composer’s 250th birthday. The centrepiece of this ‘festival within a festival’ will be the APO performing the complete cycle of nine Beethoven symphonies in four concerts over nine days.
