Technical Design of the Year – Martyn Roberts: Light Design (This Other Eden)
Male Performance of the Year – James Adams (This Other Eden)
Director of the Year – Jacqueline Coats (This Other Eden)

Brenda Rendall, Martyn Roberts and Jacqueline Coats all won their categories, an achievement that reflects the outstanding reception of this new opera. We wish to congratulate all the winners from the awards, as well as to recognise James Adams for his nomination. Opera Otago believes it is essential to support new operas, particularly ones from New Zealand composers and librettists such as Anthony Ritchie and Michelanne Forster. We acknowledge the wonderful cast and crew in their achievements.
Thank you too for your support – we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
