This series of creative conversations is brought to you by The University of Waikato in collaboration with Baycourt Community and Arts Centre. Each creative conversation is designed to inform, engage and explore various aspects of the arts and participation.

Dame Malvina Major presents a fascinating illustrated discussion about how the voice functions. This presentation will include DVD examples that highlight what a performer is asked to do in an Opera production: all the while maintaining vocal excellence, the performer must also deliver the languages and acting skills required of the role.

Dame Malvina Major is a Senior Fellow in Music at the University of Waikato and has had an outstanding international career. She has had major opera roles all over the world before returning to New Zealand to teach and perform throughout the country. In 2012 Queens Birthday Honours she received The New Zealand Order of Merit (ONZ) and actively gives back to the community through the Dame Malvina Major foundation which was first formed in 1992 to support the training of young New Zealand artists.
