Growing Opera Stars
‘Growing Opera Stars’ is a unique opportunity to experience the special relationship between PPV students and their heroes from Festival Opera’s Madame Butterfly cast.
Audiences will enjoy performances of opera classics, duets and solos, sung by PPV students and the opera stars, including tenor Darren Pene Pati (of Sol3 Mio), Toni Marie Palmertree (American Soprano) and Gary Griffiths, (Welsh Baritone).
It is an ‘up close and personal’ insight into the special relationship that develops between young singers and their mentors. Project Prima Volta is a singing-based music programme that provides 30 Hawke’s Bay teenagers the opportunity to find their own voice, through song, and in life.
Many of these teenagers experience severe hardship and other obstacles to success, so proceeds from the evening will be used by the Prima Volta Charitable Trust to help support these students and ensure the continued running of the programme.
