To celebrate the inauguration of “ The Ansonia Room“ at The Auckland Opera Studio we are presenting Sole Mio’s Amitai Pati and Isabella Moore, who is visiting home from San Francisco, in an intimate early Sunday evening Soiree.

The combination of a glorious Tenor voice and a beautiful Soprano, singing a charming programme of solos and duets, - ranging from classical to contemporary popular music and from Operatic Arias to Musical Theatre favorites will result in a very lovely concert.

This will be a unique way to spend two hours on a Sunday evening with Amitai who is well into the beginnings of a really important International career and the beautiful Bella who is also making her mark on the international scene.

These two exciting young artists, who are both winners of the prestigious Lexus Song Quest, will be accompanied by pianist Rosemary Barnes in this stunning new city concert venue.

Parking will be available next door to 24 St Benedict St Newton and there is easy access to The Ansonia Room with a lift to the second floor.

Further information can be found at The Opera Studio website.There will be a few last minute tickets available at the door before 5.30 on Sunday the 14th.
