Eight Songs for a Mad King - Christchurch

TÅ«ranga, 60 Cathedral Square

Get outside the box of opera as you know it with this innovative indoor/outdoor staging of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s “astonishing work” (Classical Source) Eight Songs for a Mad King.

This new production by New Zealand Opera, directed by Thomas de Mallet Burgess and designed by Robin Rawstorne sees a king in distress transformed into a modern corporate everyman as a disarming device to explore our complicated relationship with mental health and power. As an added twist, you will experience the action again, with only a window separating you and the King.
