Turandot; The Puccini classic – created especially for the acclaimed Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour’s jaw-dropping outdoor water-stage performance, director Chen Shi-Zheng brings a unique perspective to this classic story.

Turandot is the beautiful and powerful princess, who challenges her many suitors to answer three riddles on pain of death. Calàf is a brave prince from a foreign land, who falls instantly in love with the princess.

Puccini’s Turandot is one of the greatest operas ever written: brilliant melodies for music-lovers, a gripping story for those that need action and drama, an exotic setting and plenty of movement for lovers of stagecraft and visual splendor. Not forgetting an incredible version of Nessun Dorma sung by Riccardo Massi.

With a cast of seventy-eight, designer Dan Potra has created a stunning set for the spectacular harbour backdrop, including a 60-meter fire-breathing dragon, with a tail that morphs into the Great Wall, and a shimmering pagoda that stands 18 meters tall.
Steering away from traditional Chinese tropes, the director presents a China that is sleek and modern, with set elements and costumes that reflect the spirit of today. The production also features 187 hats and headdresses, 46 wigs and 30 sets of facial hair!
Expect bold, dramatic, bright shapes and a set that will take your breath away.

Adults $30.00, Senior/Student $25.00

From director Te Arepa Kahi (Mt. Zion), this documentary tells the story of iconic, chart-topping, Kiwi song Poi E by the Patea Māori Club. Conceived by Dalvanius Prime and brought to life by residents of Patea, hit hard by the economic tribulations of the Muldoon era, Poi E captured, and changed, New Zealand culture.

Says Kahi, “In those times, it was the English songs that were known, but this Māori song prevailed and made it to the top, because of the beauty and pride we have for our language… The world we live in today was in some sense paved by Dalvanius. The iwi Māori radio stations, Māori Television are all results of his hard work.”
