Puoro Whakaari Opera AOTEAROA NEW ZEALAND
Light and romantic in nature, serenades have been written and performed to charm lovers and friends for centuries. A Springtime Serenade is an operatic voyage back to the classics. One of Australasia’s leading operatic sopranos, Emma Pearson joins classical guitarist Barkin Sertkaya to serenade you in an afternoon of opera using this unconventionally intimate and informal instrumentation.
Renowned soprano Anna Leese returns to curate this much-loved music series. This year with New Zealand artists and New Zealand compositions and arrangements in every programme, St Paul’s at One celebrates our own unique flavour of classical music in Aotearoa. Featuring a wide range of instrumentalists and vocalists, we are lucky to host many of Aotearoa’s most outstanding and exciting musicians in their fields. We represent opera, classical guitar, a chamber orchestra, a vocal ensemble, and Tararua, an exciting ensemble of Western and traditional Māori instrumentalists, who craft waiata, karakia, and pūrākau to tell uniquely Southern stories.
