NZ'S BIGGEST ARTS FESTIVAL FOR CHILDREN, 11 - 23 MARCH 2013
The Capital comes alive with young people from around the region during the biennial Capital E National Arts Festival and that’s just the way we like it. After ten years, the Festival is a firmly established feature of Wellington’s cultural landscape, and the 2013 programme offers up an amazing array of world-class productions.
In 2013, you’ll notice variety not just in the art forms, but also in the scale of the productions. The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra bring the entire orchestra into the Town Hall with Gareth Farr’s new composition for Sky Dancer, inspired by the Witi Ihimaera novel. From the iceberg-sized epic The Man the Sea Saw in the Opera House, to the intimate and multi-sensory The Man Who Planted Trees from Scotland's Puppet State Theatre Company, we have brought the best of international work to Wellington’s young audiences.
The outcome of positive first experiences in art and culture is dramatic and generational. We are proud of the positive impact we make to Wellington, through its young people, families and diverse communities. These achievements can only occur with support from partners and funders, whom we gratefully acknowledge. Most importantly, Capital E National Arts Festival is only a success because Wellington gets behind it, so grab a ticket, come along and be inspired!
See you in March.
Director, Capital E
