STANDING OVATION FOR BRAVO! (article first published : 2005-04-4)

A standing ovation crowned the opening night of Bravo! Night at The Opera, the Playhouse Company’s momentous return to producing opera in Durban after a hiatus of some 12 years.

Booking is advised for the rest of the short season which has just three more performances of this brilliant showcase production profiling acts from four of the world’s greatest and most highly charged operas, Verdi’s La Traviata, Puccini’s La Boheme, Bizet’s Carmen and Johann Strauss’s Die Fledermaus.

The production features a line-up of hot South African operatic talent on top form, including sopranos Zanne Stapelberg and Angela Kerrison; mezzo-soprano Dale Wesson; tenors Dewald von Solms and Stéfan Louw; baritones Abel Moeng and Bongani Vilakazi, and the renowned Durban Serenade Choral Society.

Bravo! Night at the Opera is directed by Steven Stead, with stylish décor by Greg King, couture creations by leading Durban fashion designer Terrence Bray and lighting by Michael Broderick. Naum Rousine conducts the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Performances are in The Playhouse Opera on April 5, 7 and 9 at 19h30. Pre-booked tickets range between R35 and R85, and door prices range from R50 to R100 (concessions for block bookings, students, scholars and pensioners). Booking is through Computicket on 083 915 8000 or www.computicket.com or Dial-A-Seat on 031 369 9555.
