We are delighted to be supporting the 2014 New Zealand Festival by providing Archeus gift packs to the outrageously talented artists, performers and writers coming to perform in Wellington from 21 February – 16 March. You can put in an advance order for your very own Gentle Camellia or Geranium & Frankincense gift pack on the website. They retail for $52 and will be available from Monday 17 February.
This year’s festival features an amazing range of treats including the genius of Deca Dance; the exuberant opera Ainadamar; the smoky vocals of Madeleine Peyroux to the other-worldness of the Bach Collegium Japan. Plus there are a number of premieres by NZ talent including Auckland Theatre Company’s ‘Paniora’ and Lemi Ponifaso’s ‘The Crimson House’. We can’t wait to have you all here in Wellington.
And, life being what it is, there is a direct link between the Festival and Archeus, as many years ago I was publicity manager for the 1994 and 1996 festivals! It was a fantastic experience and a joyous ‘full culture immersion’. So to my old festival colleagues, including Sue Paterson and Shelagh Magadza, and to the rest of the team that makes the festival so good for audiences and artists alike… congratulations on a great event and good luck for the next few weeks!
