CLASS ACT (article first published : 2001-10-16)

Gifted Durban soprano, Stacey Almond, teams up with busy pianist and musical director Evan Roberts in a new season of eclectic music and gentle comedy – aptly titled Class Act - at the Royal Hotel Backstage Theatre in October.

Class Act is a coming together of the two different and divergent styles and numbers from pop to folk, jazz to opera, comedy to classics, music from the movies and some delicious comic musical moments,” says Stacey.

Their extensive line-up includes Madonna’s number one hit from her new album, Don’t Tell Me; pop mega hit – A Whiter Shade of Pale; Gershwin classics such as Porgy is My Woman Now and Somebody Loves Me. Also featured will be Somebody to Watch over Me by Strauss and from the movie The Prince of Thieves, Everything I Do by Bryan Adams.

Also featured will be It’s As If We Never Said Goodbye, one of the much-loved songs from Sunset Boulevard. Heading towards the classics will be the Theme from the Aranjuez Concerto by Rodrigo and Bachianas Brazilians no 5 Centilena by Villa Lobos.

Stacey Almond has been described as a “soprano magnifique – being able to sing in any style.” The former Royal Convent Garden artist has performed all over the world. She recently represented South Africa at the national freedom day celebrations in Bombay, India, and currently teaches singing, and performs regularly with the popular Colla Voce Quartet.

She will be performing with Evan Roberts, recently musical director in Pieter Scholtz’s Piaf – No Regrets at the Kwasuka Theatre, who appeared at the Royal Backstage in Let’s Misbehave with Carol Trench and Anthony Stonier.

Class Act runs Wednesdays to Saturdays at 19h00 at the Royal Hotel Backstage Theatre from October 17 until November 10. Tickets R120 include a three-course meal in excellent Royal Hotel style. Bookings on (031) 333-6000/6222.
