Set in the idyllic surroundings of Pegasus Bay Winery, this operatic afternoon is one you won’t want to miss.
A trio of some of Australasia’s leading operatic voices will come together with the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Chief Conductor Benjamin Northey to perform many of the most loved music and arias from world-famous operas as well as some favourites from Broadway and the West End.
Bring a picnic or choose from an array of food offerings from Canterbury’s top chef, Jonny Schwass.
For the ultimate treat, indulge yourself with a three-course feasting menu before the concert from the multi-award winning Pegasus Bay Restaurant’s kitchen, showcasing the best of local and seasonal ingredients. The meal will be accompanied with a selection of the finest aged wines from the family cellar.
Coach transport to and from the city is also available.
