From Morning Report, 8:48 am on 22 August 2019

A central Auckland theatre is being renamed in honour of Dame Kiri Te Kanawa as a permanent tribute to the soprano.

Aotea Centre's ASB Theatre will become Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre on November the 20th.

Dame Kiri will be the guest of honour at a gala concert to celebrate the theatre's new name. Zoe George reports.
