An evening of fun, laughter and opera.

Join Professor Paul Farrington, the vocal tutor to the New Zealand Opera School during WOW! - Wanganui Opera Week who will give us a talk of his involvement in making the film 'Quartet' under director Dustin Hoffman.

Stars of the film are Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly, Tom Courtney, Pauline Collins and Michael Gambon. Professor Paul Farrington was engaged by Hoffman to teach the stars how to mime convincingly as they play ageing opera stars who are persuaded to come out of retirement and sing at a money-raising concert for their retirement home.

One evening only!

Please be prompt!
