This will be a joyful, hilarious and heartfelt tribute to Jim Henson and all his creative worlds, and is a world premiere, exclusive to Wellington and New Zealand.

Wellington hosts The Jim Henson Retrospectacle to celebrate the magic and wonder of Jim Henson’s legacy with a world-first showcase of events. The Jim Henson Retrospectacle sees Henson’s creative worlds come together again for the first time; live in concert, on the giant screen, and behind the seams.

Presented in partnership with Oscar-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie and the NZSO, a once-in-a-lifetime tribute to Jim Henson’s musical legacy and a genuinely uplifting music event befitting Jim’s memory. Bret shares the stage with much-loved characters from Sesame Street, The Muppets and Fraggle Rock.

The Jim Henson Retrospectacle live in concert is being uniquely developed and its presentation will be a world premiere.
