PŌ | BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS
Mika and the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra
Mika creates a powerful and large scale performance to showcase the raw beauty of native song and dance in his spectacular new tribal pop opera – Pō | Beautiful Darkness.
Acclaimed composer Gareth Farr and pop maestro Steve Robinson have collaborated with Mika on an original score performed by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra under the musical direction of Penny Dodd.
Mika delivers ringing anthems and bittersweet lullabies, alongside a cast of local and international dancers and musicians, to create a living, breathing, contemporary house of ancestors remembered – and imagined.
