The capital city of New Zealand is the real city of culture. There are three repertory theaters, a wide range of musical events, and the famous International Festival of Arts. Every year-end, the New Zealand School of Dance and the New Zealand Drama School, Toi Whakari, hold performances at various venues.
Information on performances can be found in the monthly magazine Theater News, NZ Musician (modern), Music in New Zealand (classical) and Rip It Up (pop/rock), all of which are available at major newsagents or in libraries.
Those interested in theater performances should check the following establishments:
New Zealand Ballet Company
Those with a flair for concerts should drop by the Michael Fowler Centre (MFC). Housed in the attractive Civic Centre, this concert hall is the venue for major musical performances. Information from MFC Ticketing is available at 04-801 4263.
Live pub music is available at Molly Malones. Another good location would be Tatou, which is noted for its good jazz served in smart, modern surroundings.
