Members host an Opera in their home or in another member’s home if they do not have suitable facilities. The format of the Opera, whether it’s DVD or CD, is the choice of the host member.  Also it does not necessarily have to be a complete opera, it can be favourite arias or overtures or favourite performers. The options are endless! This group is based mainly in Tauranga.
