Due to popular demand, one of New Zealand’s most spectacular natural attractions, the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, will host an encore of Underground Sounds, a unique music and dining experience, on Saturday 20 March 2021.

The highlight will again 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 perform a range of classics like Nessun Dorma, O Sole Mio, How Great Thou Art and You’ll Never Walk Alone.

The Underground Sounds experience includes one night’s accommodation at the Novotel Hamilton Tainui Hotel, with attendees transported by coach to Waitomo. On arrival enjoy canapes and drinks before a special musical showcase featuring Geoff inside the stunning Cathedral.

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

This unique experience is limited to 100 people.
