Double act: Chinese countertenor Xiao Ma teams up with Gao Ping (pictured above) in Opera to Pop. Next week sees the start of an exciting series of events to cel- ebrate Aratoi s milestone 10th anniversary. The series includes an exhi- bition, performances and a talk on local history, reflecting the differ- ent strands of activity that Aratoi has become known for. The archives have been raided for an exhibition tracing the his- tory of Aratoi, built in 2002, and its predecessor -- the Wairarapa Arts Centre. Photographs, text and archive materials will take you through the circuitous path from humble beginnings to the contemporary arts facility that we now enjoy. On display this month in the Windows Gallery. Check: aratoi.org.nz for details. Next week there are two events to entertain nature and history buffs, and delight music lovers: Public talk by curator and art historian Linda Tyler, Wednesday, February 15, 2-3pm. This month, curator and art/ architecture historian Ms Tyler will be staying at New Pacific Stu- dio, Mt Bruce, to research the life of early watercolourist and botan- ist John Buchanan (1819-1898), who visited Wairarapa in the 1870s. Buchanan sketched the areas around Masterton and Tirohanga. Opera to pop Xiao Ma Countertenor Concert -- Opera to Pop -- with Gao Ping (piano), Friday, February 17, 7pm. Tickets $25. Young Chinese countertenor Xiao Ma made his debut as Cherubino in The Marriage of Figaro with the Shanghai Opera, and has wowed audiences with his ability to move from baroque arias to pop and Chinese folk songs and through male and female registers. Xiao Ma is rarely heard outside China, and this is his first visit to the Southern Hemisphere. He will be displaying his extraordinary range in this concert, which spans from operatic arias to his mezzo- soprano repertoire of German lieder and Chinese popular songs. Xiao Ma will be accompanied on the piano by Gao Ping, his friend and fellow native of Chengdu, in south-west China. Gao Ping is an outstanding composer and now holds a composition lectureship at the School of Music, University of Canterbury University. His com- positions have been presented by Michael Houstoun, John Chen, the Christchurch International Arts Festival, the New Zealand String Quartet, and NZTrio. Reviewing a Naxos disc of Gao Ping s performance of his own chamber music, critic Ian Dando called Gao the man with 1001 tone colours . Later this month and March A Ruamahanga River Journey, Wednesday, February 22, 7pm. Twenty years ago local histo- rian and writer Gareth Winter had the idea of exploring the Ruamahanga River from its source. Now he is planning a book on the Ruamahanga, with each section (defined by the bridges) concentrating on a different aspect of the river and our impact on it as it flows through the val- ley. Gareth will share with us an outline of his ambitious project. Meeting Karpovsky with Helen Moulder and Sir Jon Trimmer, Sunday, March 4, 4pm to 6pm. Tickets $25. Acclaimed ballet dancer Sir Jon Trimmer and actor Helen Moulder combine talents in this heart- warming play that opened at the Court Theatre in 2002 and is now touring by popular demand. Helen Moulder plays Sylvia, who has all the dance moves in her head, but is afraid to step out -- until her idol turns up mysteriously and breaks through her brittle cocoon. A not-to-be-missed production, with music by Stravinsky, Bach, Tchaikovsky, Adam, Weber and Lincke. Now showing at Aratoi: Wairarapa Review VII, until March 18; That was then. this is now - Harry Watson, until Febru- ary 26; Okey Dokey - Taren Wood, February; We are all transistors - Carla Cescon, Scott Donovan and Alex Gawronski from ICAN, Syd- ney, until February 19.
