Pre show talks

Want to learn more about the operas?

Pre-show talks are presented by a member of the New Zealand Opera team prior to mainscale performances. Guaranteed to enhance your experience, these talks provide a fascinating insight into the history of the opera, the composer and the production. No registrations necessary, simply come along one hour before your performance time.

The Marriage of Figaro and Semele: pre-show talks precede every performance; one hour before the show starts.
