    May 2018

    Moscow Ballet 'La Classique' - The Nutcracker

    Thursday 17 May - 7:30pm


    Presented by: Grand International Concerts Ltd

    Following 2017 sell-out performances of Swan Lake, Moscow Ballet La Classique returns to New Zealand to present the jewel of classical ballet, Tchaikovsky’s spectacular masterpiece THE NUTCRACKER.

    La Classique was founded in 1990 by its current director Elik Melikov.

    La Classique with its artistic ballet mastery, lavish costumes and magnificent stage sets will take us on a journey back in time to the frost-covered, gas lit world of Clara, her beloved nutcracker doll and the magician Drosselmeyer.

    This romantic tale with its blend of magic and realism brings to life the popular Tchaikovsky score featuring the famous Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” and “The Waltz of the Flowers.”

    The greatest success of Russian Theatre is undoubtedly classical ballet with this delightful production of the much loved Nutcracker, La Classique captures the imagination, the passion, the humour and magic of the ballet.

    Box office opens 6:30pm
    Doors open 7:00pm
    Concert starts 7:30pm

    Tickets available from Ticketek:  0800 842 538 or

    May & June 2018

    Heath Franklin's Chopper 

    Thursday 31 May and Friday 1 June - 7:30pm


    Presented by: Laughing Stock Productions

    In the beginning, God created the moustache...and it was good. Then he took the next 6 days off, because when you've nailed it, treat yourself to a lie-down.

    The world has had religion ever since God was in nappies, and what have we got to show for it: wars, terrorist attacks and Christian rock. It's time religion took a hard look at itself, so Chopper is starting his own one, in his own image and giving hell to the almighty.

    Are you sick, lonely or poor? Well, there are plenty of other churches for you. Chopper is looking for rich idiots to tithe the crap out of; but really, any sinner will do.

    There is a new 'mo-ssiah' for a new age and he's holier than Oscar Pistorius' bathroom door.

    Thou shalt harden up and become a Chopostle! So gather round and be healed by Bogan Jesus!
