Auckland Arts Festival/Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki regrets to announce that due to AUCKLAND BEING IN ALERT LEVEL 3 it is working to RESCHEDULE Taonga Moana - A love letter to the oceans.

An announcement of a new date will be made in the coming weeks but please hold onto your ticket(s) while we work to reschedule.  Your original tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled date.

Any enquiries should be submitted in writing to Ticketmaster.


Aotearoa New Zealand's outstanding national chamber choir, Voices New Zealand, presents a breathtaking musical and visual homage to the beauty and vulnerability of our oceans.

Celebrating our moana as precious taonga with uplifting music from around the globe, this beautiful concert accompanies the flight of the kuaka/godwit, from icy northern seas all the way down to a fragile sanctuary in Antarctica.

Starting in the North with a new work by eclectic Finnish composer Jaakko Mäntyjärvi about the Arctic Ocean, we encounter whales, turtles and mysterious serpents on this musical journey following the great Māori navigator Ui-Te-Rangiora on his quest to save the oceans. Travelling through Latvia, Canada, the US and Indonesia, we arrive at a sanctuary - the majestic Antarctic - captured in a new work by New Zealand’s Warren Maxwell, and inspired by his own, personal experiences on the ice.

Conducted by Karen Grylls, with elegant direction and choreography by New Zealand Arts Laureate Sara Brodie, Taonga Moana is set to a stunning landscape of projected moving images.

This spectacular theatrical event is an ode to the power and poetry of oceans – essential now more than ever to survival on our planet.
