Concert #53

Deborah Massell, soprano
Nina Postolovskaya, piano

A potpourri of classical and popular music

A sparkling blend of classical and popular vocal and piano music: from Liszt to Lehar, from Porter to Puccini, and from folk to the fantastic. A potpourri of great music that will make your heart sing. 

It's a show with comedy and classics. Coming from New York City, this show was very well received at Harbin Hot Springs last week: "People laughed almost the whole way through the 50 minute show." 

Deborah and Nina have both independently entertained in concert halls, opera houses and cruise ships all over the world and are currently preparing this show to go out together as a partnership. It is a classically-oriented show, approximately an hour long, with music, dialogue and robust humor. The music consists of medleys, created by the artists, of famous Viennese waltzes and melodies of Lehar and Strauss, opera arias of Puccini, musical-theater songs, and piano solos of Chopin, Liszt, and Mozart. The music is well-known but the treatment is fun and irreverent. The show takes the concept of "recital" right out of it's boundaries. It's more like a cabaret, with dialogue, interruptions, audience participation on one number, rivalry between us performers, and exciting sound effects.
