NEW ZEALAND SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

FOUR SEASONS – Sunday 7 November 2021, 2.00pm

Vesa-Matti Leppänen Director
Anna van der Zee Violin
Malavika Gopal Violin
Simeon Broom Violin
Alan Molina Violin

Vivaldi The Four Seasons
Piazzolla orch. Leonid Desyatnikov Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas

Enjoy a taste of foreign climes in this programme of beloved string works. Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is a favourite, and famously paint each of the Italian seasons in vibrant sound and instrumental colour.

Astor Piazzolla’s Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas (also known as The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires) transports us to the steamy streets of Argentina, cleverly combining Vivaldi’s most recognisable tunes with the sensual tango sounds which characterised Piazzolla’s ear-catching style.

Directed by NZSO concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen, this programme will also feature fellow NZSO violinists Anna van der Zee, Malavika Gopal, Simeon Broom and Alan Molina playing a ‘season’ each. With its lush string sounds and music so evocative of faraway locales, this concert promises to be a transporting pleasure for the senses.

House Information

Accessibility

We pride ourselves on being one of the most accessible venues in the city. We have flat access through our main doors and staff are more than happy to help with the doors if needed. Taxis can drop off and pick up patrons from outside these doors and we can order a taxi for you after the show.

There are accessible toilets on the lower level and a roomy lift provides access both to these facilities and to the Stalls seating. Seats in the Circle are accessed via several flights of stairs so we recommend patrons with mobility difficulties book seats in the Stalls.

We have seven dedicated wheelchair spaces and our events are available via an augmented hearing assistance system.

We also have opera glasses available for hire for $5 at the Box Office – just ask when you come in.

We encourage our patrons to discuss their needs with us so we can ensure they enjoy the show.

Bar Service

Our bars have a selection of New Zealand wines and beers as well as juices, water, light snacks and ice creams. The bars will be closed five minutes before the show’s published start time.

Theatre Etiquette

People come to the Regent Theatre to have a great night out. So everyone has a good time, we ask all our patrons to be courteous to those around them.

  • Please turn off all your electronic devices before you come into the auditorium.
  • If you have taken snacks from our bar back to your seat, try not to rustle when the house lights go down.
  • If you are late to a show, get comfortable in our bar area until we can turn the house lights back on so you can find your seat.
  • Camera flashes occasionally make performers stumble – over their lines or their feet – so we prefer that you don’t use flash (or any other) photography.
  • Please keep your feet on the floor – someone counting the beat on the back of your seat can be distracting.
  • Dancing in the aisles sounds like fun but it might make our Circle collapse. If you really need to dance (and it’s the right sort of show), please book seats in the Stalls or make your way out to the foyer.
  • We encourage you to introduce your children to the arts, but please also teach them to watch and listen quietly and peacefully.
