Scoop Competition: Win Tickets To NBR NZ Opera Double Bill

Scoop has one double pass to Saturday's final Wellington performance of NBR New Zealand Opera's production of Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci to give away. The performance is a 7.30pm at the St James Theatre, Wellington.

Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci is opera's most famous double bill, thanks to the first inspired pairing of these two one-act operas in New York in 1903. Nowadays, they’re simply Cav&Pagverismo works of great realism, high-voltage emotion and scorching entertainment!

More information about Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci on the NBR New Zealand Opera website.

To be in the draw email with the subject line "Opera Competition" and in the email give your name, cellphone or contact number and the answer to the following question:

“Who plays the role of Canio in Pagliacci?”

Entries close at 6pm today, Friday 2 September 2011. The winner will be notified soon afterwards.

Tickets to New Zealand Opera's Cavalleria rusticana & Pagliacci start at $49.50. Book for the Wellington season at Ticketek. The Auckland season runs from 15 to 25 September with bookings at The Edge.
