In a tribute to what would have been Pavarotti's 81st year, Ten Tenors co-founder Roger Davy and Vavachi Entertainment presents Pavarotti & The Diva Recently performing to standing ovations at the recent Fringeworld Festival in WA, well-known Australian tenor and Vavachi Entertainment director said he wanted to celebrate the legacy of the famous Italian operatic tenor Luciano Pavarotti, who was born on October 12, 1935, in Modena, Italy, and died on September 6, 2007, from pancreatic cancer. “Pavarotti was one of the finest tenors of the 20th century and an extraordinary man.”
The show celebrates the life of the great Luciano Pavarotti ,The Man & his Music, his unique style glamour and magic, with a touch of Romantic and Comedy. Let the voices of our world class Tenor & Soprano combination spellbound you with popular melodies from Opera, Operetta to the wonderful world of Popera Duets, including songs by Andrea Boccelli and Sarah Brightman including, The Prayer, Time to say Goodbye, Brindisi and Nessun Dorma.
This show has had successful local performances in Melbourne, Sydney and on the Gold Coast as well as internationally across South East Asia.
Mr Davy has sung with Opera Queensland, Opera Australia and in Germany and the UK over the past 25 years. He was instrumental in establishing the Ten Tenors and formed his own company Vavachi Entertainment in 2003. The company’s main aim, apart from delighting audiences throughout Australia and Asia, is to be a launching pad for young talent. Several of his students have gone on to successful careers nationally and internationally with such names as Andre Rieu.
Pavarotti & The Diva, is more than a recital of old favourites. The show has a plot linking the songs and revealing the stories behind them. Add to that, the light-hearted farce of the Tenor (Pavarotti) competing for the attention of the beautiful soprano (Diva) Harriet and you have plenty of laughs and musical excellence.
Joining Mr Davy in the show will be local Western Australian soprano Diva, Harriet O’Shannessy. Harriet who's is a former West Australian Opera Young Artist (2011-2012) is also a graduate of the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) and the Sydney Conservatorium of Music (Masters of Music (Performance). Among her many accomplishments nationally and internationally, Harriet toured with Oz Opera performing Gretel in Hansel and Gretel. Her roles include Fiordiligi in Cosi fan tutte, Nerina in La Fedelta Premiata (Sydney Conservatorium of Music), and Abigail in The Crucible (WAAPA).
