Opera in the Garden
Saturday 9th March 2019


Join us for a spectacular outdoor matinee concert in the relaxing Kennaway's beautiful garden setting to enjoy another afternoon of memorable songs by the Opera North soloists and chorus.

We are honoured to have Joel and Maia Amosa as the guest artists for the 2019 Opera in the Garden. Joel won the prestigious 2018 Lexus Song Quest and Maia was a finalist in the 2018 Dame Malvina Major Foundation NZ Aria competition. This is a fantastic opportunity for people to experience singing of the highest calibre; an occasion not to be missed.

The theme this year is “Our Amazing World of Music” which lends itself to a broad range of beautiful operatic and musical theatre melodies.

So for a really enjoyable afternoon concert filled with quality singing, pack the chilly bin, a blanket or deck chair and join us for our 23rd Opera in the Garden.
