OPERA IN THE PĀ (Live at Te Puia)

OPERA IN THE PĀ (Live at Te Puia)

Te Puia returns as the host venue of this iconic event Opera in the Pā in 2021! A magical and breath-taking evening of opera, and Māori and Pasifika music in the heart of Rotorua.

Gates open from 4pm, giving ample opportunity to enjoy the late afternoon ambience, find friends and enjoy the refreshments available on-site. Concert-goers will be invited to take their seating by 5.20pm, with the concert beginning at 5.30pm.

The glow of the setting sun frames the spectacular wharenui, Te Aronui a Rua, for the concert finale. The perfect culmination of Māori and Pasifika voices celebrating Waitangi Day 2021.

The aim of Opera in the Pā is to encourage and promote Māori, Pacific and other young New Zealanders to enjoy and sing Opera. It also promotes Rotorua as being a quality event and lifestyle destination.

Opera in the Pā proudly celebrates the magic of Rotorua and our potential as a Tourism destination, winning the NZ Tourism Awards in 2002 and 2003 for cultural innovation and heritage.

The unique setting of Rotowhio Pā at Te Puia provides the perfect combination of traditional Māori surrounds amid the geothermal splendour of Te Whakarewarewa Valley, led by event director Elisha Hulton.
