“He who sings frightens away his ills” - Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote
A journey through the ages in the world of singing does not only stop at classics or contemporaries.
The PSPA Singers are proud to present such a performance together with three prominent singers from Thailand. The PSPA choir members are from all walks of life and they will not be belting out just songs but well known repertoires as well.
The performance has an interesting programme. The first half of the show consists of repertoires by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart from his well-known operas : Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte.
These comedic (buffa) operas reflect a lighter singing style instead of the stereotypically dramatic and tragic styles. The character of Don Juan in Don Giovanni portrays a fictional libertine (undesirable) and seducer. The character of Don Alfonso in Così fan tutte (“Thus do all women”), was considered by many as Mozart's comedic gem, a cynical character faces a test of faithfulness in love and romance. Although classified as a comic opera, it blends in melodrama as well and was a revelation then in a rather uptight society.
The second half performance will consist of musicals through the ages from the light to the serious. Amongst those includes songs from the 1959 musical, the Sound of Music, with “My Favourite Things, Edelweiss" and the epic romantic musical Les Misérables with "One Day More, Do You Hear The People Sing”.
