‘It’s a life changing experience.

But don’t just take our word for it, here’s what PPV students say about the programme:

I’ve learned through doing PPV that I can be whatever I would like to be its helped me to become someone who can achieve what I never thought could be achieved. Taylor Wallbank

“I think its important to have something out of school so you can meet new people who have at least one common interest and who can relate to you.” – Kathy Pearson

“The diversity not only vocally but culturally and personality wise makes PPV rehearsals exciting and pushes people to work harder.” – Sinead Palmer

WE WANT YOU! If you want to be part of this special organisation, developing your musicianship, enjoying and growing through amazing performances opportunities, register your interest now!

If you are year 11 – 13
 come along and audition for the Hawke’s Bay-based music programme, PROJECT PRIMA VOLTA.  You’ll meet every Thursday night, and enjoy a variety of opportunities – you’ll perform as a soloist and as part of a group and you’ll receive tutoring in voice and stagecraft, all preparing you for sharing the stage with international artists in Festival Opera’s annual opera staged for the Tremains Art Deco Festival.

Hastings Boys High SchoolThrough our partnership with Festival Opera, we stage a special orchestral concert, taking advantage of a symphonic orchestra being in town over the summer. This event is an excellent opportunity for students to see and hear orchestral instruments and professional musicians up close, and to get a preview of some of Puccini’s magical score from Madame Butterfly as well as some special appearances from Project Prima Volta.

Intro to Opera

Project Prima Volta

Do you have students new to opera?

Here is a teaching resource that explains what opera is and gives insights into the world of opera, it’s language, history and people. The aim is to make opera approachable and real for Y9 and 10 students.

We are thrilled to include contributions from some of New Zealand’s top vocal talent and rising stars: Anna Leese, Mosey Mackay, Carleen Ebbs and Pasquale Orchard, as well as current PPV student Tiffany Drew. We think this resource is a great way to introduce opera to young people and we hope you enjoy using it with your students.
