Come along to our first lunchtime concert for the year, a screening of NZSM’s Opera Scenes 2020.

Voice and collaborative piano students of the New Zealand School of Music—Te Kōkī are featured in eight scenes from various operas, ranging from Monteverdi’s Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patrica to Puccini’s La bohème.

Realised as a series of films rather than a live performance, and completed under COVID19 Alert Level two restrictions, the project offered an assessment basis but also a much needed performance opportunity for our students in 2020.

Directed by Jon Hunter and filmed and edited by Transmit, the project also involved a number of MFA (Creative Practice) interns providing camera work, set design and sound recording. The audio was recorded in the Adam Concert Room, with Graham Kennedy as audio engineer and musical direction from David Barnard.

Experience the full glory of the stunning singing in 5.1 surround sound in the Adam Concert Room at this special screening to kick off our Friday lunchtime concert series.
