The Marriage of Figaro (Wanderlust Theatre, Wellington)

From the creative team behind the "witty and delightful" Cosi fan tutte - a SELL-OUT show at the Globe in 2016 ...

One of the most beloved operas of all time, Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro is set over the course of one crazy day in the household of Count Almaviva. Barber-turned-valet Figaro and his sassy fiancee, Susanna, join forces with the long-suffering Countess to outsmart their devious employer. This new sweetened and condensed adaptation by writer/soprano Georgia Jamieson Emms is performed in English and features a cast of singers from New Zealand Opera. Directed by Jacqueline Coats, this Figaro is innovative, economical, definitely a bit cheeky, yet preserves all the best bits of Mozart's masterpiece. Critics have called it “hilarious” and “sparkling with wit and ingenuity”.


ENTRY: $41 ($22 student). Book online HERE.

Wed 14 MAR, 7.30-9.30pm
Chamber Music New Zealand: Anderson & Roe Piano Duo
Exploding genre boundaries, Anderson and Roe are as much at home with Mozart as they are with Daft Punk.
ENTRY: Subscribe for the 2018 season at chambermusic.co.nz
$10-$50 tickets. Book online HERE.

Tue 20 MAR, 7.30pm
The Spooky Men's Chorale
"It is not possible to state when the existence of the Spooky Men first came to light. Early settlers in the Blue Mountains reported attacks on livestock and evidence of scats and the occasional pawprint. It is only in recent years that sceptics have been disabused of the notion that the Spooky Men’s Chorale is the stuff of fanciful legend."
ENTRY: $30 ($25 senior/student, $15 junior). Book online HERE.
