Beleura presents a Christmas Pantomime
Rigoletto’s aka He Had it Comin’
Presented by Opera Su Presto - Devised, Written & Directed by James Wright
Is it murder in the first degree?, Or are these crimes of passion committed by wild women who were driven to the point of no return?
Not for the faint-hearted, this comedic romp is full of twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your Eggnog. The perfect Christmas Bon Bons Bonanza!
The Scenario: Bad Girls of Opera - Tosca, Salome and Lucia - collide at Rigoletto’s New York Italian Diner in a tour de force of femme fatale triumph over the men who “done them wrong”. What their motives for committing such heinous felonies?
And what of the men who risk life and limb to protect the women they love? Are they merely pawns in the bigger picture of power being played out by beguiling, belligerent beauties for their own benefit?
Film Noir meets Opera Su Presto in this gritty take on 1950’s New York underworld. With music by Donizetti, Puccini, Verdi and Strauss – plus a few surprises!
Musical Direction by David Ross-Smith. Produced by James Wright.
With Amanda Stevenson, Bruce Raggatt, Dannielle O’Keefe, Kate Amos and Stephen Coutts.
