Life is a Kabarett with NZSO


The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra’s hit Shed Series of concerts returns to Wellington in November to celebrate wonderful music inspired by the flourishing cabaret scene of the 1920s and' 30s.

Kabarett features a rare performance of Kurt Weill’s Suite from Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, where banjo, bass guitar, saxophone, and more play alongside orchestral instruments.

Another magnificent arrangement performed in Kabarett will be Claude Debussy’s orchestration of fellow Frenchman Eric Satie’s timeless and hugely influential Gymnopédies No's 1 & 3.

Each NZSO Shed Series concert presents a mix of classic and contemporary works in the relaxed setting of Shed 6, where the audience can sit or stand throughout the evening and buy food and drink when they wish. The series is very popular with people new to orchestral music, as well as regular NZSO concertgoers.

Tickets to Shed Series Kabarett are $35 and available HERE
