The Freemasons New Zealand Opera Chorus performs in the company’s main stage opera productions as well as a number of other major concert events annually. There are three choruses, based in Auckland, Christchurch and Wellington respectively.

For opera productions, principal cast and creative teams work between each city, while each chorus rehearses and performs in its home base. Rehearsals are generally in the evenings or weekends.

Chorus Auditions

Annual auditions for the Freemasons New Zealand Opera Chorus are held around September/October 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, or for more information, please contact:
