NZ Opera

Chapman Tripp Opera Chorus

The Chapman Tripp Opera Chorus is the chorus of New Zealand Opera. There are two choruses each based in Auckland and Wellington, and numbering around sixty-five singers in each city. A further chorus will be based in Christchurch from 2013.

For opera productions, principal cast and creative teams work between both cities, while each Chorus rehearses and performs only in its home base. Sometimes additional Chorus members are recruited when large opera productions or concert works require an extended number of singers. The Chapman Tripp Opera Chorus performs for NZ Opera's main stage opera productions as well as a number of other major concert events annually.

Chorus Auditions

Annual auditions for The Chapman Tripp Opera Chorus are held around November each year. If you are a trained or experienced singer this is a great opportunity to perform with New Zealand’s national opera company. To book an audition place or for more information please contact:
