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.
