Event Details

NZ Opera Open Day is on again on Saturday 22 May from 12.30 – 2.30pm!

Join New Zealand Opera at their Parnell headquarters and get a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the creation of their brand new production of The Marriage of Figaro. Hear the genius of Mozart’s score brought to life by our talented performers on the rehearsal room floor. Marvel at the wardrobe, wigs and makeup teams in action.

This event is free and great fun for all ages.

Important information for the Open Day
As NZ Opera is 3 weeks away from opening night to The Marriage of Figaro they want to ensure the health and wellbeing of our cast and crew.

All visitors into our building to scan the COVID-19 tracing app or sign in before entering the main building.
150 people will be allowed in the building at any one time. Should there be more than this number at any one time, there may be a short wait to be let into the building. Places in the Studio Rehearsals will be limited to 50 patrons per session and NZ Opera asks that you wear a mask when entering the studio due to the close proximity of the space. These will be provided if you do not have one. Rehearsals sessions run in half hour blocks, allowing the first 50 people into a session. NZ Opera ask for you to remain in the session for the full 30 minutes to avoid interruption of the rehearsal.
