DivaLicious and The Impresario
Sydney Opera House, Sydney, NSW, 2000, Australia
8th November 2017 to 9th November 2017
Join DivaLicious in this hilarious modern adaptation of Mozart’s musical comedy. Sublime singing, scandalous script, a sensational send-up of the operatic world. The opera company is going under! Opera is too expensive and audiences are falling. Can “The Impresario” (film actor Igor Sas) and his faithful singing assistant Mr Bluff (baritone Robert Hofmann) put “art” on a “business basis” without losing its integrity? Will he walk away and retire to a winery or stay and watch generous benefactor, mining magnate Mr Angel (actor Ian Toyne), insist on the dangerous strategy of engaging two rival sopranos? DivaLicious comic sopranos (Australia's Got Talent finalist) Fiona Cooper Smyth (Dame Gwendolyn “Goldie” Goldentrill) and Penny Shaw (Svetlana “Silvie” Silverpeal, winner of Slovenia’s Got Talent) star in the original Duelling Divas story. Enhanced by additional music from his more famous operas, The Magic Flute, Cosi Fan Tutte and Don Giovanni, Mozart’s most topical story, written in 1786 could have been “tweeted” yesterday!
