New Zealand Sotheby's International Realty Nelson Opera in the Park 2023

Sat 18 Feb, Trafalgar Park Nelson, from 5.30pm

The alluring mix of contemporary and operatic music under a summer night’s stars is back in Nelson in February 2023 after being cancelled earlier this year due to Covid restrictions.

New Zealand Sotheby's International Realty Nelson Opera in the Park lights up the stage with a programme designed to attract a broad audience of all ages and tastes, not just music buffs. 

High-profile contemporary performers Stan Walker and Annie Crummer are joined by accomplished opera singers Madeleine Pierard (soprano) and Oliver Sewell (tenor), all accompanied by the rich sound of Christchurch Symphony Orchestra under the baton of conductor David Kay.

Pre-show community entertainment starts on the NBS Community Stage at 5.30pm.

Bring a picnic and enjoy a wonderful night of music in the open air for the whole family.
