OPUS OrchestrA celebrates its partnership with the University of Waikato presenting the winner of the University of Waikato 2015 Aria Competition, Filipe Manu, singing the lyrics of NZ poet Denis Glover in Holiday Piece, remembering NZ composer Douglas Lilburn on the 100th anniversary of his birth. Felipe will also remember the loving in your life with Tradito Schernito from Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, Una Furtiva Lagrima by Donizetti and Dein ist mein ganzes Herz by Franz Lehar.

The concert will also feature Douglas Lilburn's "Aotearoa" Overture. In London, the student Lilburn conjured up the place we all call home - landscapes of dynamic contrasts and awe-inspiring empty spaces.

The concert will conclude with the majestic melodic heights of Schubert's Symphony no. 9 in C major - "The Great ".
