Wellington Opera will take audiences on a journey of musical and theatrical discovery, launching with Mozart’s masterpiece Don Giovanni at the Wellington Opera House April 2021.
Wellington audiences are in for a real treat, with a dynamic New Zealand cast featuring many principals back in New Zealand on pause from their careers around the world. They include Christian Thurston (Don Giovanni) from Minnesota Opera, James Ioelu (Leporello) from London, Oliver Sewell (Don Ottavio) from New York, Natasha Wilson (Zerlina) back from Pittsburg Opera, and Paul Whelan (Commendatore) also from New York. Joel Amosa (Massetto) is a recent Lexus Song Quest winner, Amelia Berry (Donna Anna), one of our finest resident sopranos and the outstanding Amanda Atlas (Donna Elvira) with a string of international successes behind her.
The production of Don Giovanni is directed by Sara Brodie, with designer Meg Rollandi, and Matthew Ross as Music Director, with the Wellington Opera Chorus and Orchestra Wellington.
This is a bold yet timeless production offering food for thought for our times whilst embracing the theatricality of old.
