Rose worked with Barbarian Productions on:

Grand Opening, Opera House
28/29 March 2015, as part of Cuba Dupa

The show runs continuously throughout each session time listed below. We will admit an audience every 15 minutes, beginning with the start time listed. Capacity is limited. Grand Opening is an interactive show, including climbing stairs and some low light conditions. People who have accessibility requirements, please make yourself known to front of house staff.

Grand Opening is Barbarian’s contribution to the inaugural Cuba Dupa Festival, and while some secrecy needs to be maintained about the performance it will be characteristically bold and comical, involving a host of collaborators – some old friends, some brand new. Artists, community groups, eccentrics, outsiders, maybe even some celebrities. They’re taking the opportunity to give the Opera House an invigorating blast of fresh, progressive, FREE theatre, in an event that showcases the grandeur of the Opera House architecture.

The Barbarians have been given the keys to one of Wellington’s most iconic performance venues – the Opera House – and as you’d expect, they’re turning the place upside down, throwing open the doors and letting everyone in.  So come and join them!Guy Langford,
