The Maleny Singers, bDifferent Dance Academy, and Maleny Performing Arts Orchestra are deep in rehearsal for their show in June.
The story, on one level. Is for children, with a dragon, an evil queen, and a Prince who rescues a lovely maiden. On another level, it is a morality play, with an ‘everyman’ comic birdcatcher, and a priesthood with Masonic principles of wisdom and forgiveness. Throughout, the music is late Mozart – light, delightful, and moving. It is the second-most performed opera worldwide, and fans will hear why.
Director Margaret Taylor has judiciously abbreviated the text, and the Singers’ favourite soloists and chorus are rehearsing with dedication and humour. There will be lively dancers, colourful costumes, and our tuneful orchestra to add to your enjoyment.
Performance dates are as follows: Saturday June 17th, at 6:30 pm; Sunday June 18th at 2pm; Saturday June 24th at 4pm; and Sunday June 25th at 2pm at the Maleny community Centre.
