Auckland’s Candlelight Concerts Have Revealed More Shows Including Tributes To Music Greats

These concerts by Candlelight have invited everyone to relive the greatest works of classical music, from Vivaldi to Mozart to Bach, in an intimate atmosphere and experience music in a new light at some of Auckland’s most magical locations.

But wait, now there’s more because the globally-renowned series, which has wowed the US, UK, Spain, France, and Australia, will be enchanting the city with a range of concerts that’ll suit all musical tastes.

If vintage classical music isn’t quite your jam, then no worries because the Candlelight series has upped the offering with tribute concerts to some of Jazz’s most celebrated artists like Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Ray Charles and more.

Rock classics and rock legends will also receive the Candlelight treatment this year and so too will pioneers of dance music. You will also be able to lose yourself in the flickering glow of flameless candles whilst the stirring melodies or rousing film scores from magical movies and anime films sound from the stage before you.

Auckland’s first Candlelight concerts featured Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Beethoven’s Best Works, and Chopin’s Best Works, all played by the most talented musicians. While you might be bummed that you missed out, there are more classical music concerts by Candlelight scheduled including special nights with ballet performances.

With countless flickering candles illuminating each unique space, the Candlelight concerts take place twice each night with two back-to-back 60-65 minute performances. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each show.

The concerts have been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!”

Take a look at all the concerts below and grab your tickets before somebody else does.

Please note: For the safety of our audience and performers, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
