Page 3 Segway (see today’s NZ Herald ‘Canvas’)

Mezze soprano Wendy Dawn Thompson features in a great photo riding a Segway PT in today’s Herald ‘Canvas’ (NZ’s largest newspaper).

Wendy says “I didn’t know what these were called and had thought they looked a bit daggy, but was soon converted to the Segway when I rode one onstage during ‘The Italian Girl in Algiers.’ Paris has the free Velob bicycle system – imagine if we did the same thing in the central city with Segways.”

She performs in NZ Opera’s production of ‘The Italian Girl in Algiers’ at the Aotea Centre, Auckland 28 May to 6 June.
