STARLIGHT POP OPERA (article first published : 2005-05-15)

The KZN Philharmonic Orchestra presents the seventh annual Starlight Pop Opera, generously sponsored by First National Bank, at the scenic Durban Country Club on June 5 from 17h30.

These concerts have become one of the highlights on the South African cultural calendar and are a “must see” event.

This year’s concert will showcase the considerable talents of Heinz Winckler, South Africa’s first Idols winner; gifted Cape Town-based operatic soprano Zanne Stapelberg who was recently seen at the Playhouse Company’s highly successful Bravo! A Night at the Opera and the enchanting Nondumiso Tembe who is currently studying in New York City.

Taking the podium for this glittering event will be dynamic Chinese conductor En Shao, always a favourite with Durban audiences.

This special concert promises to be an unforgettable evening, featuring a fine selection of arias from well-loved operas, an attractive mix of light classics and highlights from popular musicals. Adding to the entertainment will be glamorous dancers performing both modern and classical dance.

First National Bank will donate R5 from every ticket sold at the concert towards the KwaMashu-based Gozololo Project. This worthy enterprise supports children who have been affected by HIV/Aids and also those children who have been abused or left homeless.

Pack a picnic basket with delicious food and wine, bring fold-up chairs and treat family and friends to an evening of beautiful music under the stars. Gates will be open at 15h00, although patrons are encouraged to arrive early to avoid the last-minute rush.

Tickets at the gate are R85 (R40 children). Booking through Computicket on 011 340 8000. There will be free secure parking at the nearby ABSA Stadium.

In the event of rain, the concert will take place at 18h00 on June 6.
