Event Details

Prepare yourself to enjoy one of the most unique theatrical experiences you’ll ever “experience” when you “experience” acclaimed tenor Luciano Paparazzi for an evening of operatic comedy. Yes, finally, opera and comedy together as they were never meant to be.

Paparazzi will take the audience on a journey through the last century of popular music and “educate” you on why opera is the greatest form of music ever devised. Because, in his over-inflated opinion, all “pop music” has been influenced and shaped by it. Is it true? Who knows? Paparazzi believes so, and would it really hurt to hear the man out? The worst scenario is that you have some great laughs and listen to excellent music in this production that is good, clean silliness for audiences of all ages.

Canadian theatre professional Kieran Martin Murphy not only morphs into this hilarious spoof of the great Pavarotti, but he also takes on a cavalcade of other musical greats in an effort to prove this thinly veiled point. Tom Jones, Roy Orbison and Elvis make appearances as well as some other surprise guests. The show is guaranteed to tickle the funny bone and delight your ears.

With special guests Sabrielle McCurdy-Foreman and Tiffany Bishop, with Bruce Petherick on keyboards and Emma Thorpe on fiddle.
