A unique festival performance showcasing the songbook of New Zealand’s first recording pop star and the music that influenced her.
In 1949, Pixie Williams gave voice to one of the most enduring popular melodies of the twentieth century – Blue Smoke. A triple platinum hit that made Pixie a household name overnight, Blue Smoke was just the beginning.
Pixie went on to record a further 12 songs, including another single platinum hit, mixing universal themes and international music styles with the unmistakable flavour of Aotearoa New Zealand.
Join Kirsten Te Rito, Rachel Fraser and Katelin Little as they bring Pixie’s music to life with interpretations of her most loved recordings and the songs that shaped a generation.
Stay and sip awhile after the show at the Piano Bar, with live music playing from 9pm–10pm, at the Theatre Royal Lounge Bar.
