A week long wananga about opera

From Māpuna, 12:10 pm on 24 February 2024

In April New Zealand Opera will hold a week long wananga at Waikato University with an open invitation to Aotearoa's story tellers to embrace one of music's most challenging genres. Could one of them develop a new opera? Opera singer Kawiti Waetford will be a mentor at the wananga and the General Director of New Zealand Opera, Brad Cohen, who enjoyed a distinguished international career as a conductor is helping to organise it.
