Rail Land

15 Nov

Tickets (+ fee): $25, or $30 including train ride / 4pm

Ride the rails on Ōamaru’s vintage steam train during the Victorian Fete (running every 30min 11am-4pm).

Then at 4pm at the Opera House experience a journey of the mind, through song and story, about New Zealand’s on-and-off love affair with passenger rail. Critically acclaimed musician Anthonie Tonnon celebrates passenger rail in Aotearoa in a poetic exploration of rail, and a meditation on what it means to us in the modern era.

Our railways are miraculous, poetic, and mysterious things. The are gifts from the past to the future, and if they didn’t exist now, they would be impossible to build from scratch. Each has a story, and Rail Land aims to tell a little of each one.

Rail Land consistently sells out around the country and gets rave reviews. Do not miss this amazing show.
