No Tenors Allowed

Saturday, October 24    8 pm    Main Stage  


Bruce Kelly and Matthew Zadow present favourite arias and duets for two baritones, selected from opera, operetta and musical theatre works with Dina Namer, on piano, playing the orchestra.

Why should tenors have all the fun? After all, in operas, they seem to always get the girl (or murder her) or play the hero or the lover. The baritones usually play the fathers, brothers, confessors or villains but there is no arguing with the fact that when great opera composers needed compelling actors, they almost always wrote for this “middle voice”.

Baritones are fighting for their time in the spotlight and these two will hilariously take you through some of your favourite operas, arias and duets. Please note: While tenors are not allowed on the stage, they are welcome to join the audience.

Our upstairs and accessible Burrell Hall bar and concession opens at 7 pm.
