Theatres in Auckland cover all kinds of live genres. There are venues to cover everything from small, arthouse productions, to vast, symphony orchestras or performance pieces. Aucklanders take great care of their theatre venues, so you'll find good facilities, bars, comfy seats and reasonable prices. Booking through an operator will cost more so, when you find something you want to see, try and book direct with the venue box office. You can find repertory and visiting theatre productions, student offerings, classical music, opera, ballet and pop concerts, as well as cinema, dance and comedy. Most theatres have licensed bars or cafes, plus some have galleries and lecture halls. There's always a festival of some kind happening in Auckland, so by checking the regular entertainment listings, you might get chance to catch something you wouldn't have thought of paying for, before.
