OPERA SCENES: School of Music Festival


One of the year’s musical highlights, Opera Scenes prevails in its capacity to captivate and delight audiences. This event serves as a vocal feast previewing the future of New Zealand opera. With resounding performances from the School’s talented voice students, this year’s programme comprises a wide variety of familiar and unfamiliar repertoire, ranging from Mozart to Lehár, Blitzstein to Offenbach, Thomson to Humperdinck, all set as a vaudeville show straight out of 1910 New York.

Opera Scenes is the culmination performance of The Wallace Opera Training Programme, made possible by generous support from The Wallace Foundation. The cast consists of undergraduate and postgraduate voice performance students, coached and led by the School of Music’s accomplished academic and performance staff.

N.B. It is strongly recommended that you prepay through Eventbrite to be assured of admission. There will be limited door sales, and the venue is Eftpos only (NO cash facilities). Online sales will close 3 hours prior to each event start time.


With thanks to The Wallace Foundation.

Wallace Opera Training Programme


The Wallace Foundation has generously endowed the School of Music with funding to establish the Wallace Opera Training Programme.

The Wallace Opera Training Programme, directed by Head of Voice Dr Te Oti Rakena and Artistic Director Dr Gregory Camp, is a one of a kind incubator for growing the opera stars of tomorrow.
