New Zealand String Quartet - Dangerous Liaisons
Friday 8th September 7.30pm-9.30pm.
Join us on our 30th-anniversary tour for a concert filled with passion, yearning, joy and heartache. Our 'Dangerous Liaisons' programme explores themes of love and desire and will take you on an emotional journey through some of the great works of the repertoire.
Romeo and Juliet’s tragic love story serves as the inspiration for the young Beethoven’s first string quartet, and Bartok’s unrequited passion for a virtuoso violinist lies behind his own first foray into the genre. On a happier note, Schumann’s quartet celebrates the composer’s triumph over parental opposition to marry the love of his life.
A word of warning: this will be an intimate affair and the music may steal your heart!
Beethoven: String Quartet no 1 in F, op 18/1
Bartok String Quartet no 1 in A minor, Sz.40
Schumann: String Quartet in A, op 41 no 3
This concert is general admission (no pre-allocated seating).
Subject to ticket demand, door sales may also be available on the night.

The Sound of Music
Saturday30 September 3pm-5pm and 7pm-9pm
One of the world's best-loved musicals, THE SOUND OF MUSIC, will tour New Zealand this September and October.
This legendary Rodgers and Hammerstein musical features an unforgettable score that includes some of the most famous songs ever performed on the musical stage including “My Favorite Things”, “Edelweiss”, “Do-Re-Mi”, “Sixteen Going on Seventeen”, “The Lonely Goatherd”, “Climb Ev’ry Mountain”, and the title song “The Sound of Music”.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC tells the uplifting true story of Maria, the fun-loving governess who changes the lives of the widowed Captain von Trapp and his seven children by re-introducing them to music, culminating in the family’s escape across the mountains from Austria.
The musical originally premiered on Broadway in 1959 to record-breaking advance ticket sales, where it won eight Tony Awards - including “Best Musical”. The show opened in London in 1961 and became the longest-running American musical of its generation. The 1965 Hollywood film, which starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer, won five Oscars, including “Best Picture”, and quickly became the highest-grossing film in history. Even today, THE SOUND OF MUSIC remains the most successful movie musical in history.
Since the turn of the 21st century, the enduring magic of THE SOUND OF MUSIC has lead to major productions around the world, giving testament to its title as “The World’s Most Popular Musical”.
