Magical music and spellbinding circus

After 2017’s the sell-out show Midnight, the APO is collaborating again with The Dust Palace, Auckland’s leading circus theatre company.

In an enchanted realm a young warrior searches for her father before the darkness consumes him. Fighting back the shadows, she is pushed to the limits of her bravery. In the darkest hour, we all fear the morning might not arrive...

While our heroine searches in the darkness, encountering magical creatures and a dazzling display of cirque artistry, the orchestra sets the scene. From the subtle drama of Handel’s beautiful Sarabande, to Respighi’s quirky portrait of ‘The Nightingale’,  and meeting the new day with the most famous sunrise ever set to music-  Grieg’s shimmering ‘Morning Mood’ from Peer Gynt.
