Join the Flood ...
To participate in NZ Opera's largest community outreach endeavour to date! To celebrate Benjamin Britten's 2013 centenary New Zealand Opera will continue to perform his wonderful opera, Noye’s Fludde (Noah’s Flood) with children from around Wellington in 2014.
This one-act opera features soloists, a children’s chorus, orchestra, and you – singing along with us in three hymn-like settings. Come and join our celebration of youth, community, and opera!
An adaptation of Mozart's fantastical opera The Magic Flute!
In 2012 over 3,500 Auckland students enjoyed Linda Kitchen's The Magic Flute and the Stolen Sun as part of our Opera in Schools outreach programme. We're delighted to be heading to schools once again in Wellington and Christchurch with this 45 minute English language version.
Here's your chance to see this production live on stage in Christchurch in our only public performance on Saturday, 29 March.
Starring Morag McDowell and Richard Green in filmed roles with Oliver Sewell, Milla Dickens, Leisa Falconer, Edward Laurenson, Kieran Rayner and Elizabeth Mandeno all performing live.
Support gratefully received from the Christchurch City Council, Creative New Zealand, Mainland Foundation and Shipleys.
Save the Date! - Sunday 30 March 2014.
Auckland Friends invite you to join them once again for a Summer's afternoon of opera at the beautiful Takapuna cliff top home of Margaret & John Cullen. Stroll in the garden and take in the magnificent unimpeded view of Rangitoto. Top it off with some wonderful opera and delicious drinks and canapes.
Our star artist this year is direct from the Metropolitan Opera in New York, New Zealand tenor Simon O'Neill.
