20 November

Join us to celebrate one of the world’s greatest sopranos at an exclusive gala concert event. Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, New Zealand’s first Grammy Award winner, has performed on the most spectacular stages across the globe and will be the special guest of honour* at this extraordinary event which will feature much-loved operatic favourites.

Ensure you are part of this once-in-a-lifetime, historic moment celebrating Dame Kiri’s formidable talent, her contribution to the arts and the renaming of the ASB Theatre in her honour.

*Dame Kiri Te Kanawa will be the guest of honour at the gala, and will not be performing.

I look forward to seeing many talented, hard-working New Zealand singers perform the greatest operas right here in future, as my Foundation and enablers such as ASB Bank and RFA build a new opera legacy together.
