Classic Arts News   New Zealand International Arts Festival Posts Budget Surplus for 2004
 
The New Zealand International Arts Festival made a profit this year of NZ$136,000, the festival announced today.

"The profit was achieved in a particularly difficult year with a large number of other events competing for the same discretionary entertainment dollars," said Fran Wilde, chair of Festival Trust. "There were a number of key events that proved enormously popular, and many out-performed our budget and audience forecasts."

The Festival, which is held in New Zealand's Wellington region, featured performances by the National Ballet of Spain and composer Tan Dun, who led the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra in his Concerto for Water Percussion and The Map: Concerto for Cello, Video and Orchestra.

The next New Zealand International Arts Festival is scheduled for February 24-March 19, 2006.
