What are the consequences of our actions? The New Zealand School of Music presents two extraordinary operas where consequences minor and major are writ large and with compelling beauty.

Coming to terms with consequences in childhood doesn’t always prepare us for adulthood’s complexities. What happens when you fall in love with the wrong man? Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas is an intense exploration of love, intimacy and despair between two very public figures set to some of the most profound and moving music ever composed.

In Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortilèges, we are taken into a fantastical child’s world. Based on a deliciously absurd story by French writer Colètte, this short opera dazzles with uncanny soundscapes, evoking the terrorised toys and animals that finally compel a naughty boy to admit he needs his Mum.

Featuring New Zealand’s most exciting young singers, this will be an unforgettable night at the opera.
