Extra La Traviata Performance for Wellington

The NBR New Zealand Opera announced today an additional performance of the Genesis Energy Spring Season of La Traviata at the Westpac St James Theatre on Monday 17 October at 7.30pm.

This is in response to the vigorous demand for tickets in Wellington that has resulted in a only a smattering of lower-price band seats available for the four scheduled performances on Saturday October 8 at 7.30pm; Tuesday 11 at 6.00pm, and Thursday 13 and Saturday 15 October at 7.30pm.

The decision comes following rave reviews and a highly successful sell-out Auckland season. Tickets for the additional Wellington performance are on sale now through Ticketek or The NBR New Zealand Opera Box Office.
