Thrill to the songs of the stars in October and November

WELL-KNOWN tenor, Roger Davy, has been bringing music-lovers exactly what they want for 12 years now and has the mix exactly right.

Once again you can thrill to all the wonderful old songs in his new show Broadway to Pavarotti.

After successful performances around Australia, including Melbourne, Sydney and Gold Coast's Twin Towns, it is finally Brisbane and Toowoomba's turn to be enchanted with the magic of popular musicals and opera.

The show takes you on a journey from the best of Broadway to your classic opera favourites.

Who hasn't been charmed by West Side Story, Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera? Add to that the delights of opera from the Merry Widow, La Boheme, La Traviata and Rigoletto and you know you are in for the evening of your lifetime with Roger and friends.

Joining him is international soprano Simone Nicole, an accomplished dancer, cabaret artist and opera singer; as well as local tenor Iain Henderson who has sung with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and was a soloist in the BBC's The Dr Who Symphonic Spectacular.

The mastermind behind this splendour, Roger Davy, has sung with Opera Queensland, Opera Australia and in Germany and the UK.

He was instrumental in the establishment of the unforgettable Ten Tenors and with that success under his belt, formed his own company, Vavachi Entertainment.

The company's main aim, apart from delighting audiences throughout Australia and Asia, is to be a launching pad for young talent.

A number of Roger's proteges have gone on to successful careers both nationally and internationally with such names as Andre Rieu.

Broadway to Pavarotti is more than a recital of old favourites. Roger has created a plot linking the songs and revealing the stories behind them.

Add to that the lighthearted farce of the two tenors competing for the attention of the beautiful soprano Simone and you have a guaranteed evening of laughter as well as musical excellence.

And of course, you'll be delighted with Roger's famous tribute to his all-time favourite, Luigi Pavarotti.

Don't miss Broadway to Pavarotti for one night only at Brisbane's Queensland Multicultural Centre on Saturday, October 10 and Toowoomba's Armitage Heritage Bank Auditorium/Empire Theatre on Saturday, November 7.

Both are cosy, intimate theatres, so get in early to be sure of a wonderful evening of entertainment.
