Opera is undoubtedly one of the most wonderful forms of emotion transformed into music. In each aria, you feel and hear the joy, love, madness, anger, sadness – any emotion you can think of. All of this portrayed by an artist. This is not the easiest of tasks, but if done correctly, that artist can take you to a whole new world and show you a little piece of ‘magic’ through the most beautiful music in the world and angelic vocals.
Casta Diva Boutique Hotel is very proud to announce that they have a very exciting upcoming concert, Concert of Dreams, with local, world-class artists.
South African opera stars Anina Wasserman (soprano), Chris Mostert (tenor), Linette van der Merwe (mezzo-soprano), Thabang Senekal (baritone) and Albert Aldrich (baritone), accompanied on piano by the legendary Susan Steenkamp-Swanepoel, will be performing opera arias and duets from operas like Verdi’s much-loved La Traviata, Rigoletto and Falstaff, Saint-Saëns’ Samson and Delilah and Gounod’s Romeo and Juliet, just to name a few. The audience can also look forward to much-loved arias from operettas like Stolz’s Frühjahrsparade and a Neapolitan favourite or two.
As an added bonus, the audience will also be indulged with the amazing piano arrangements by famous South African pianist Martin Lane. Lane will be performing various arrangements of well-known opera arias, symphonies and much-loved songs.
