Wellington Comic Opera

Wellington Comic Opera has delighted and amused audiences across New Zealand since 1957.  Our productions are done to a professional standard drawing on the region's best singers and actors.  

We are an incorporated society. Our legal (and original) name is the Wellington Gilbert & Sullivan Society. We changed to Wellington Comic Opera in 2021.

We have yet to announce our next production but see below for some photos of our very successful 2023 production of Gilbert & Sullivan's Pirates!


Our most recent season of PIRATES! toured Wellington, Lower Hutt, Upper Hutt, Raumati, and Palmerston North in May 2023.  Directed by the talented Alison Hodge with Music Direction by Michael Vinten, Theatreview described it as "Spiffingly good fun, genuinely rollicking, tuneful, and a super-intelligent update".

Photos of a few of our older (pre-Covid) shows are shown below...

Though we are still getting plans in place for our next production, please email us at wco@wellingtoncomicopera.nz if you would like to either (a) hear about upcoming auditions, or (b) receive information on upcoming productions and ticketing.  We would love to hear from you.  You can also follow us on our Facebook page.
