Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (APO) regrets to announce that The Trusts Community Foundation Opera in Concert: Britten’s Peter Grimes, scheduled for Friday 9 October, has been cancelled. This was a difficult decision for the APO but with New Zealand’s borders remaining closed due to Covid-19 putting on an event of this nature was unachievable.
For concertgoers still wanting to experience opera in concert live the APO is just finalising a special opera gala event featuring some of New Zealand's favourite opera stars performing scenes from some of the most beloved operas. This event will take place on Friday 9 October, to replace the previously scheduled Peter Grimes. More information about this new event will be available very soon.
