Western Canada Theatre Presents: Liberation Days

INSPIRING DRAMA – After suffering under German occupation in WWII, the Netherlands has been liberated by Canadian forces. But liberation doesn’t always seem like freedom. In this beautiful new play, a Dutch woman and a Canadian soldier create a new world together, as a community discovers what remains of their old lives, and what’s been lost forever.

Kamloops Symphony Orchestra Presents: The Magic of Vienna

The Kamloops Symphony brings the sounds from the “city of music” to the Sagebrush Theatre with their performance The Magic of Vienna.

Vienna is considered the music capital of the world. More famous composers have lived there than any other city including Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and Brahms. The Magic of Vienna will include some of the great opera arias and duets, plus overtures, waltzes and marches in the Viennese tradition.

Soloists Lambroula Pappas, soprano, and Andrew Greenwood,
baritone, will join Kamloops Symphony for arias and duets from Verdi’s Rigoletto and Lehar’s The Merry Widow. Lambroula Pappas has appeared with symphonies internationally and across Canada. She has been acclaimed for her charisma and exquisite tone. Gilda in Rigoletto is one of her signature roles.

 

Andrew Greenwood returns to perform with Kamloops Symphony. He is an in-demand oratorio and opera singer. Greenwood performed the title role in Rigoletto for the Stadttheater Hildesheim and the Stadttheater Wolfsburg, Germany. He is employed full-time as a firefighter with the City of Vancouver, and performs in Europe and anada whenever his work schedule allows.

Rigoletto premiered at La Fenice in Venice on March 11, 1851. It is a
tragic story about the Duke of Mantua, his hunch-backed court jester, Rigoletto, and Rigoletto’s daughter Gilda. It was originally titled, La malendizione (The Curse) which referred to the curse placed on both the Duke and Rigoletto by a courtier whose daughter had been seduced by the Duke with Rigoletto’s encouragement. When Gilda falls in love with the Duke, and eventually sacrifices her life to save him from assassins hired by her father, the curse is fulfilled.
