Date nights, bridesmaid get-togethers, hen parties – no matter what to-dos are on your agenda this month, there’s an event on the community calendar to suit. 

Opera – Don Giovanni
There’s nothing like a night at the opera to get the pulse racing, especially when the opera in question is Don Giovanni – said to be Mozart’s ‘liveliest, most extreme and most romantic music’. Playing from September 18- 28 in Auckland and from October 11 – 18 in Wellington, tickets are available at ticketmaster.co.nz. 

Cirque du Soleil – Totem
In need of some pre-wedding workout inspiration? If a last-minute to Cirque du Soleil’s Totem doesn’t do it (those muscles!) we don’t know what will – showing until Sunday. 

The Grand Wedding Show
A thousand brides, more than 100 luxury exhibitors and 500 goodie bags to the first brides through the door. Excited for this Sunday’s Grand Wedding Show? We are! Come and see us at the SkyCity Convention Centre from 10am until 4pm.

The New Zealand Italian Film Festival
Playing at cinemas in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin between September 24 and October 22, the Italian Film Festival features 17 of the best flicks from contemporary Italian cinema – definite date-night material. Our (romantic) pick of the bunch? A Special Day – see italianfilmfestival.co.nz for details. 

The Christchurch Women’s Lifestyle Expo
In Christchurch next weekend? In the mood for some sampling some wine? Or gourmet food? With more than 240 exhibitors featuring everything from jewellery to beauty therapy, this the ultimate girls’-day-out idea. Visit expos.co.nz.
