What’s On: New Zealand Opera presents ‘Le comte Ory’


A crazy comedy of disguise, seduction and chaos.

What: Le comte Ory presented by NZ Opera
When: 30 May — 29 June 2024
Where: Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch

New Zealand Opera presents Le comte Ory by Rossini. A whirlwind blend of silly and sublime, Le comte Ory’s music is bursting with Rossini’s trademark pizzazz, with a contemporary (and very Kiwi) staging by acclaimed Director Simon Phillips and Designer Tracy Grant Lord breathing new life into the work.

Starring a local and international cast, with tenor Manase Latu as the hapless Count Ory, soprano Emma Pearson as Countess Adele, Hanna Hipp, Moses Mackay, Wade Kernot, Andrea Creighton, Tayla Alexander and the New Zealand Opera Chorus.

Sung in French with English surtitles.
