Each January, Whanganui Opera Week is proud to present the students of the New Zealand Opera School at various public events in the City culminating in a gala evening at the Royal Whanganui Opera House.  This festival of Opera is recognised as one of the regions most popular events and attracts visitors both nationally and internationally.   

 

Whilst events for 2022 were limited due to the restrictions of COVID, we are planning a full programme for 2023. Further information will be released in the coming months but for now, please add these dates to your diary:
