A Musical Comedy featuring Helen Moulder and Timothy Bridgewater.

This show includes The Return of a Legend, Dazzling Arias, Some Really High notes, A Newly Commissioned Opera for the 2019 International Rugby Contest in Japan, Courageous Attempt at a Speed Record and the Distinct Possibility of Chaos!

The celebrated and legendary diva, Cynthia Fortitude, has been commissioned to write an opera for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan. Sponsored by a well-known chocolate company, Miss Fortitude is combining the writing of the opera, “Balls”, with a concert to farewell her adoring public. Her usual accompanist cannot be there but she asks a famous NZ tenor to sing with her and plans an attempt on the speed record for singing an aria from Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro. The tenor does not turn up and her stand-in accompanist, Dr Gottlieb Von Oberstock Winkle Dorf causes various disruptions, and after a series of musical mishaps and misunderstandings, during which the pianist stages a rebellion, the concert nearly descends into chaos.

With music by Gounod, Mozart, Verdi, Humperdinck, Elgar, Puccini, Schubert and Miss Fortitude herself! Musical arrangements by Michael Vinten
