The New Zealand String Quartet: Four Suits and a Soprano

New Zealand’s full time string quartet is teaming up with four incredible performers for an evening of music, bringing you both operatic classics and modern hits.

Live in concert, The New Zealand String Quartet is teaming up with four incredible singers for their nationwide tour of Four Suits and a Soprano. 

The special musical event sees four accomplished performers - Ipu Laga’aia, Rutene Spooner, Laughton Kora, Chris McRae and Sophie Morris - joining The New Zealand String Quartet. As the country’s premiere chamber ensemble and only full time string quartet, the group is currently made up of Helene Pohi (first violin), Monique Lapins (second violin), Gillian Ansell (viola) and Rolf Gjeisten (cello).  

Collectively, the musicians bring great depth and breadth of experience to the stage, having toured the world with some of the best in the business, garnering praise and accolades. They continue to wow audiences with their talent and expertise, sharing traditional and modern songs alike. 
 
The April evening event will showcase operatic pieces as well as pop favourites. You’ll hear timeless songs such as Nessun dorma, the final act of Giacomo Puccini and one of the best known opera performances in history, as well as catchy modern hits. Tickets are available via Ticketek or Ticketmaster.
