The Magnificence of the Music Hall

August 2011

The Magnificence of the Music Hall

Award-winning Operatunity are presenting a favourite theatre genre with its ever-popular national tour of The Magnificence of the Music Hall.

Favourite guest artists Stuart Coats, Tessa-May Brown, Lynette Martin and accompanist Alex Wiltshire join Operatunity directors John Cameron and Geoffrey Hughes in a miscellany of music, monologues and melodrama with a galaxy of glamour and gallantry in a concert of stupendously spectacular singing.

Hughes who plays the Chairman says it is always a special and fun concert with the interaction between the audience and the Chairman and the banter between the Chairman and the performers.

“It’s a style of entertainment with everything - lots of fun music, repartee between the Chairman, the audience and the performers and of course the ever popular melodrama,” he says.

In amongst all the jokes, laughter and banter the concert will showcase memorable music hall melodies like I do like to be beside the seaside, Daisy Daisy, and The Laughing Policeman, complete with a Gilbert & Sullivan bracket.

Operatunity directors describe the show as a “rollicky, rousing, sensational, scintillating show of marvellous, mellifluous melody, monumentally magnificent melodrama and fantastic, frolicking fun”.

Operatunity will visit 25 venues from Whangarei to Invercargill with ’The Magnificence of the Music Hall’ tour, commencing in August. Tickets from $25 include lunch with the artists, with discounts available for group and concession bookings.
