An Evening with Marlena Devoe

The Auckland Opera Studio is privileged to be able to offer you this unique opportunity to hear – up close and personal – the finest soprano voice New Zealand has on offer. 

On Sunday, 09th April, we have organised for Marlena to be with us in the Studio at 24 St Benedicts Street, Newton, Auckland to showcase for you her voice before she returns to Europe. it is a rare opportunity for us to bring you such a developed talent – one that has been nurtured and polished so well by Frances. it is likely we will have few opportunities to see Marlena in the foreseeable future so we wish this evening to bring you a close encounter with a young woman who is at the top of her game. she represents the best in New Zealand opera talent. 

Seats are limited so get in fast. Doors will open at 5:00pm for 5:30pm start, the door price is $50 and you will receive a complimentary glass of wine and a a few hors d’oeuvre.

This is one soiree you should not miss. To secure your tickets call 09 523 1013 or email or bring cash on the night.


We hope to see you all there. 

2017 Operanesia

2017 Operanesia

Operanesia – February 2017

With the weather forecast showing showers in the lead up to this years Operanesia picnic we were lucky enough to avoid the rain on the evening.

The team worked extremely hard to get the stage and grounds ready for the approximately 500 people that had pre-purchased their tickets to arrive at 4:30pm.

Our final count at the gate was over 550 people.

Once everyone had found their spots and set themselves up the show started.

All 550 + people sat on the lawn and enjoying their picnic, while watching and listening to our singers.

The music of the boys of Operanesia and the soprano of Marlena Devoe was excellent.

Marlena was outstanding and she has a busy schedule back in Europe in the middle of the year.

Overall, we all had a delightful evening picnicking in the lovely garden of Jones road, Omaha.


We are looking forward to seeing you all there again next year!
