Die Fledermaus Postponed
The Opera Otago executive has decided, due to the ongoing red traffic light setting in 2022, to delay any season of Die Fledermaus until we can welcome a full theatre. We will keep you updated here for any rescheduled season announcements.
We aim to present two productions per year, one large-scale production and one production aimed at children, with workshops and tours of the region where time and resources permit. Our Executive Committee is made up of several enthusiastic and talented individuals with a broad range of experience and knowledge that we utilise in running the company.
As a not-for-profit volunteer organisation, Opera Otago relies on grants from local and national businesses and trusts to support it. We also rely on individual supporters who make up our audience, our membership base, and who can donate to help us to maintain a quality home of Opera in the South of New Zealand.
