Orchestra Wellington's fourth concert of 2016 will showcase three final works by composers closely associated with Vienna – Mahler, Schubert and Berg - each demonstrating a century of visionary music from this great culture.

Last Legs


Circa Theatre's 40th anniversary celebrations continue this month with Roger Hall's new comedy, Last Legs. 40 years ago, Circa premiered Roger Hall’s Glide Time so it seems appropriate that he help them celebrate their 40th birthday!
