New Zealand soprano for Paul Potts Rotorua concert

New Zealand soprano for Paul Potts Rotorua concert

Rotorua fans of Britain’s Got Talent winner, Paul Potts, will also get to see promising New Zealand Soprano Anna Hawkins when she joins him on stage for his Civic Theatre concert on EasterSunday.

Potts said he was delighted to have the Waikato born singer sharing the stage with him on his eight show ‘One Chance’ New Zealand tour.

Hawkins recently returned from Tokyo where she played the starring role of Christine in a season of ‘The Phantom of the Opera.’

She said she was thrilled to be coming back to Rotorua where she earlier enjoyed success in the New Zealand Aria competition, winning the under-16 Junior Section as an 11 year old.

The young New Zealand star is going places and has already built up a wealth of performing experience in popular musicals and classical performances. She has also appeared in major outdoor concerts such as Christmas in the Park. Her recently released first album, ‘Journey On’, recorded in London and Prague, has received critical acclaim.

Rotorua Events and Venues general manager Peter McLeod is urging people to purchase their tickets for Paul Potts concert early, as well over half the theatre’s seats have already sold out two months ahead of the show.

“It’s clearly going to be a sell-out so people should get in early to avoid disappointment. We’re experiencing a lot of interest from out-of-towners as Paul’s only concerts in the upper North Island are in Rotorua and Auckland.”

Mr McLeod those wanting to make a very special night of it could also take the option of a pre-concert dinner in the adjacent Concert Chamber.

Tickets for both the dinner and Paul Potts’ 8pm 20 April ‘One Chance’ concert are available from Ticketmaster at the Rotorua Convention Centre and Ticketmaster outlets New Zealand-wide, online at www.ticktmaster.co.nz and by phone on 0800 111 999.
