KALEIDOSCOPE (article first published : 2005-11-14)

Well-known Durban soprano Stacey Almond returns to the Rhumbelow Theatre in a new show titled Kaleidoscope with KZNPO Bulgarian Violinist Attina Petrova and popular pianist David Daniel. The group is called Cross Current and performs “some of the hottest classical crossover music out there”.

Music of the Night and the title theme from Phantom of the Opera get a whole new makeover,” says Stacey, “There’s The Moonlight Sonata with words! Vivaldi with a backing and N’essun Dorma as you’ve never heard it before - and that’s just for starters!

“The beautiful song Every Time I Look at You by superstar group Il Divo, Signorita from Carmen by British all-girl rock string quartet Bond gets words!” adds Stacey. “Vanessa Mae’s stunning Electric Violin Sabre Dance by Katchaturian, Amichi The Opera Band, Andrea Bocelli, The Opera Babes, Lakmè Duet, Oh Fortuna from Carmina Burana, and a whole lot more.”

Kaleidoscope follows Cross Current’s show at Rhumbelow here last year, with special arrangements written by David Daniel.

Cross Current have had a very busy and successful year so far - performing as one of the main attractions at this year’s Durban July; for the NWJ and Pietermaritzburg Fashion Shows, and the recent Gateway Fashion Extravaganza. In November, Stacey will travel to Dubai to perform in. They have engagements in Johannesburg and at Cape Town’s Artscape Theatre in 2006.

Shows take place on December 2 and 3 at 20h00 and on December 4 at 18h30. The venue opens 90 minutes before show for picnic dinner.

Tickets R50. Take along food picnic baskets and braais will be available. There is limited secure parking and booking is essential. A cash bar is available (no alcohol may be brought on to the premises). Rhumbelow Theatre is situated in Cunningham Avenue off Bartle Road.

To book contact Roland on 031 205 7602 (h) or 082 499 8636, or email roland@stansell.za.net
