New Zealand Festival

New Zealand Festival

Late February to early March during even-numbered years
For three weeks every two years, artists, writers, and performers from all over the world come to Wellington, New Zealand, to showcase their talents in music, dance, theater, opera, literature, and the visual arts. The New Zealand Festival offers everything from Afro-Cuban dance music to the Viennese opera of Richard Strauss, from classical ballet to cutting-edge theater, and much more. The New Zealand Post Writers and Readers Week also takes place within the festival. In addition, the festival highlights the work of contemporary Maori and other indigenous artists.
