The Opera Club

Innovative Opera for All

Welcome to The Opera Club, a place for opera lovers in Christchurch and the wider Canterbury region who wish to share their passion for genre.

The objectives of the Club are to help develop opera singers, provide performance opportunities, host concerts, contribute to local events including corporate, local government and sporting events, as well as providing entertainment at opening ceremonies and festive occasions.

If you’re a performer, supporter or follower of opera, we'd love to have you on board.  Feel free to explore the rest of the site for ways in which you can get involved with opera in Canterbury.

Romance and Operetta

The Opera Club would like to invite you to enjoy an evening of lighter music from the world of operetta and romance.

The concert is directed by Stuart Maunder AM who was until recently the General Director of New Zealand Opera.  Stuart, who has been appointed to State Opera South Australia (Adelaide) will be joined by Sharolyn Kimmorley, AM as the Artistic Director, who will accompany singers in a range of solos, duets and ensemble items.

Join us in this memorable evening of beautiful music.


The bar will be open both before the performance and afterwards – and there will be an opportunity to meet the performers.  We would love to see you.
