Circus Ronalds's Circenses opening night postponed
The 2012 New Zealand International Arts Festival announces that, due to circumstances beyond its control, today’s opening night performance of Circus Ronaldo’s Circenses at Waitangi Park has been delayed by a day.
“A Wellington City Council irrigation contractor failed to turn off the Waitangi Park automated sprinkler system overnight as they were instructed, making the performance area unworkable until tomorrow,’’ says Festival Executive Director, Sue Paterson. “There has been no serious damage but the area needs time to dry out.’’
“The New Zealand International Arts Festival will put on an entirely new show on Monday 5 March at 7.30pm for those who were due to attend tonight’s performance,” Ms Paterson says. “We are taking every step we can to ensure that no-one misses out on this fantastic show.”
