Canterbury Opera has earned strong support from patrons and sponsors this year. The James Hay Theatre in Christchurch has been packed out for both opera seasons The Tales of Hoffmann in July and Turandot in October. With the company financial health described as "improving" the artistic ambition has also been heightened with the influence of new (Australia based) Artistic Director, Brian Castles-Onion.

Canterbury Opera has a new website at

Canterbury Opera produces 2-3 high quality professional seasons per year. Auditions held each October. Professional tuition, performance, events, costume and set hire.
