Before the opera takes centre stage, we invite you to join us for a special pre-show gathering. Our dedicated creative team kaimahi is here to offer you a glimpse into the world behind the scenes, enriching your experience with fascinating insights.

An hour before the performance begins, we’ll share captivating stories about the opera’s history and the talented composers who crafted these masterpieces. You’ll gain a deeper appreciation for the production as we reveal the intricacies of the rehearsal process and what goes into bringing these operas to life.

Best of all, there’s no cost, and you don’t need to register in advance. Simply keep an eye on this space for the pre-show korero times in 2024. We look forward to enhancing your opera experience and making it even more enjoyable with our pre-show insights.



I’m so glad I came to the pre show talk! I didn’t know much about this opera, but now I do! It made a huge difference to how I experienced the story and music so I will definitely do this again. Thanks!”
