Expanding audiences for classical music and opera is at the heart of two upcoming events. Next weekend opera is coming to Cuba Street as part of the Cubadupa Festival in the form Stravinsky’s Renard the Fox. The 20 minute opera includes acrobatics and professional opera stars including bass James Clayton. Then, the music of the film Raiders of the Lost Ark will attract a different audience when performed by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra. Marc Taddei explains more.
