Waitomo Glowworm Caves Underground Sounds

One of New Zealand’s most spectacular natural attractions, the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, will host a unique dining and music experience on Saturday 13 February 2021.

The highlight will be an intimate performance by celebrated New Zealand tenor Geoff Sewell, the co-founder of the world’s first opera band, Amici Forever, inside the majestic glowworm cave known as the Cathedral, famous for its acoustics. 

Geoff will add that special sparkle for those wanting to celebrate Valentine’s weekend. He will perform a range of classics like Nessun Dorma, O Sole Mio, How Great Thou Art and You’ll Never Walk Alone. 

Guests will stay at Novotel Hamilton Tainui Hotel and travel by coach to Waitomo. On arrival enjoy canapes and drinks and a private tour of the caves, before a special musical showcase featuring Geoff inside the stunning Cathedral. 

Geoff's performance will be followed by dinner and selected beverages in the Visitor Centre, an innovative building that compliments the beautiful surrounding landscape and was awarded NZ architecture's most coveted prize, The New Zealand Architecture Medal, in 2011.
