2022 Lexus Song Quest Grand Finale Gala

Get together for the 2022 Lexus Song Quest Grand Final Gala on Saturday 23 July to find out who will be the future icon of Aotearoa New Zealand opera. 

On our journey to find the voices of tomorrow, Lexus Song Quest has discovered the great singers of today. Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Dame Malvina Major, Teddy Tahu Rhodes, Jonathan Lemalu and Sol3 Mio’s Amitai Pati are all previous Lexus Song Quest winners who now grace the opera stages of the world. 

Hotly-contested and judged live on the night, watch on as five opera hopefuls take the stage in the biggest night of their performing lives, singing with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. In 2022 the stakes have never been higher, with up to $95,000 in prizes up for grabs, this coveted title is a life-changing career win.
