AS THE SUN SETS OVER THE CITY, HIGH ABOVE THE TREE TOPS, ANGELS DESCEND FROM THE HEAVENS. DON’T MISS THE OUTDOOR EVENT OF THE SUMMER.
This is Place des Anges, a playful, awe-inspiring aerial acrobatics spectacle performed above thousands of people. The one-of-a-kind creation of French company Gratte Ciel commands the twilight sky with an incredible team of acrobats and dancers. The combination of seeing performers suspended high in the air, beneath the stars and out in the open is genuinely magical – see it to believe it.
Uplifting, ethereal and totally out of this world, Place des Anges has left its mark – and countless memories – wherever it has landed around the globe. The angels descend next in Tāmaki Makaurau; for three amazing nights, the Auckland Domain is their outdoor playground. Be there to welcome them down to earth and share in the wonder of this very special event.
“Mortgage the house. Sell your possessions. Do anything that makes it possible to see Place des Anges. It is absolutely wonderful.” — The Adelaide Advertiser
“Capture[s] so much of the ineffable wonder of what it means to be alive.” — The Australian
This is a standing outdoor performance in the Upper Field of the Auckland Domain suitable for all ages. Chairs are not permitted.
