Last Night Of The Proms - Ars Nova Choir & New Plymouth Orchestra

25 Sep 2014 (Thu) - 8 Nov 2014 (Sat)

TSB Theatre - TSB Showplace

If opera makes your heart sing then you won't want to miss this.
Ars Nova Choir and New Plymouth Orchestra present the Last Night of the Proms. This year's theme is "opera", with some well known arias, duets and overtures-everything from Wagner to La Bohème. you'll certainly have heard them before (if only on the posh ads!). Compères Bryan Vickery and Stuart Trundle will be there to guide you through the festivities, and we hope to have four soloists. Clarissa Dunn returns, having wowed the crowd in 2012, and two young singers from Waikato University will delight with their operatic offerings.
Hear the usual favourites: Land of Hope and Glory, Jerusalem, I Vow to Thee My Country and the Fantasia on British Sea Songs, along with all the charmingly barmy British carry-on and some surprise guests. There's a special price for groups of 10, so why not make up a party and make a great night of it! Dinner and a show always a great night out - or make it a weekend on the town!
