German opera singer Dorothee Jansen and accompaniment
return to perform their new repertoire twice in St Peter's
Church, Queenstown, this week.
The trio known as Narropera perform Handel's Giulio
Cesare, the Italian opera about the love affair between
Julius Caesar and Cleopatra, in the church on January 22 at
Mozart's last Italian opera, La clemenza di Tito,
about the clemency of Emperor Titus, will be performed in the
church on January 25, also at 7.30pm.
Programmes cost $25 each, or $10 per student and will be sold
at the door. All proceeds will go towards the St Peter's
church organ restoration fund.
The Rt Rev Dr David Coles said the Wakatipu Anglican Parish
was ''very fortunate'' to have a return visit from soprano
Dorothea Jansen, Haydn Rawstron as narrator and pianist, and
Jan van den Berg on violin.
''They have previously performed in St Peter's Church in
January 2012 and 2013,'' Dr Coles said.
''Opera lovers in Queenstown have really appreciated their
talent and live operatic works, which are not often performed
in this area.''
