*Information regarding cancellation.
Four Auckland Arts Festival shows have been cancelled as a direct result of the Government’s new border control measures requiring all arrivals into New Zealand to self-isolate for 14 days.
All performances of Circolombia – Acéléré, Wolfgang’s Magical Musical Circus, Watt by Samuel Beckett and Soweto Gospel Choir are cancelled.
“The Festival and our artists are deeply disappointed and we are sorry that audiences will miss out on seeing these shows.”
Ticketholders will be contacted by Ticketmaster and, in the case of Watt, ASB Waterfront Theatre to arrange refunds.
All other Festival shows are going ahead as planned.

To those who know him, he is Wolfgang, the dart-playing ratbag. To those who are watching and listening, he is the wigged genius Mozart. Come and discover his irrepressible spirit and vibrant compositions through physical comedy and mischievous antics.
