Chris has joined forces with New Zealand’s most prominent and versatile corporate entertainer, Greg Ward, to create an outstanding opera experience like no other!
With Chris at the helm of their travelling grand piano, and Greg’s classically trained baritone vocals and lightning quick wit, the 18th-century garbed duo deliver a show that sounds as good as it looks.
Tailored to your exact requirements, Opera Opera is never the same twice; a mix of much loved opera classics and their comedic ‘not-so-well-known’ improvised opera makes for an exhilarating evening of class, farce, and symphonic spectacle!
To discuss how Opera Opera can make your next corporate function more 'high brow' and less 'high stress', contact Chris here.
‘Just want to say a BIG thank you … you guys really hit the spot. I had tons of positive feedback from everybody. I am really impressed and so happy to be working with you. We all loved it and let's do it again next year.’
— Adrian Barkla, Owner Operator of Remuera New World Supermarket
