IT’S THE TICKET:
Frontseat investigates the ticketing environment in New Zealand. Ticket Direct and Response Ticketing are making gains in the market, and Red Tickets have got sports covered, but when it comes to entertainment, Ticketek's a one-horse town. Julie Hill went to find out whether they're giving ticket-buyers a good deal.
THE ORCHESTRA’S BIG ADVENTURE:
Jeremy Hansen talks to members of the NZ Symphony Orchestra about their 2005 season, which is shaping up to be a very, very big one.
AKO5 – THE LOWDOWN:
On the last day of the second Auckland Festival AK05, Oliver Driver catches up again with CEO David Malacari to talk tickets, time of year, and future plans. Meanwhile, Auckland theatre-goers let us know what they thought of the festival.
One of the lesser-appreciated purposes of an international arts festival is the opportunity for local artists to watch & learn from visitors. During AK05, Auckland contemporary Maori dance company Atamira had an exclusive workshop with the acclaimed Bangarra Dance Theatre – and Frontseat was there.
FREE ART AS TOBIAS DEPARTS: Artspace curator Tobias Berger is soon to leave these shores for a new job in Hong Kong. He celebrates with a final exhibition of free art. Yes, art free to the general public. It’s his party, but we get the presents! Best regards,
The Frontseat Team
