As well as providing a full schedule of vocal, musical and stage training, the New Zealand Opera School also produces several public performances which not only enable the students to become more relaxed and familiar with performing in front of an audience, but also give the public the chance to enjoy the students' talents and to observe their development. Masterclasses with senior tutors also give the public an insight into some of the challenges singers face and the ways in which these can be overcome.
A typical calendar of performances includes:
- Lunchtime concert
- Chapel Service
- Public Masterclasses
- Evening Café Performances
- Gala Concert at the Royal Wanganui Opera House
For more information about the programme of public performances, see the Wanganui Opera Week website.
