Too Many Sopranos 🎶
January 22 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
The Opera Workshop of l’Université de Moncton’s Music Department, under the artistic direction of Professor Lisa Roy, presents Edwin Penhorwood’s comic opera Too Many Sopranos.
Imagine what would happen if five sopranos, upon arriving at the gates of heaven, were to learn that the heavenly choir could only accommodate one soprano. This is the hilarious setting for this pastiche of the operatic genre, which references the stereotypes associated with sopranos and the unenviable reputation of some old-fashioned productions. Each character represents a vocal type or person normally found in an opera production. Composer Edwin Penhorwood has cleverly incorporated short performances of various great operatic works.
Directed by Karène Chiasson, this entertaining and humorous production will feature members of the voice class as well as music and drama students on stage.
