DOUBLE TROUBLE – Mozart and Bach at Play!
Endangered Productions presents Bastien & Bastienna with The Coffee Cantata
June 18-20 at Customs House
Music, love, laughter… and coffee: it’s a heady mixture! And it’s coming to Customs House in June!
Following its critically acclaimed debut with Nordic Noir in March, this passionate company of volunteers and theatre, music and opera veterans
is upping the ante with a spectacular double bill: Bach’s hilarious Coffee Cantata and Mozart’s uber-romantic Bastien & Bastienna.
The cheeky double bill showcases the wit and wisdom of two great maestros with these rarely performed gems where
– significantly - strong, young women are taking control of the men in their lives!
A talented chamber ensemble accompanies a cast of exceptional soloists with new translations and entertaining,
intimate staging assuring fun for audiences of all ages and musical tastes.
Directed by Christine Logan, with musical direction by Peter Alexander and design by Sandy Gray, Double Trouble features soprano
Northern Sydney’s Lesley Braithwaite, Canberra tenor Damien Hall and bass baritone Ed Suttle from Goulburn. Pianist and vocal coach is Steve Walter.
A major feature of the performances is the unique opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the heritage
Barnet Long Room in Custom’s House where the four performances take place.
Endangered’s recent production of ‘Nordic Noir’ was critically acclaimed and loved by large and enthusiastic audiences.
And - just as satisfying - there are many stories from all the team (both professional and volunteers)
that have reinforced how inspiring and successful this concept of age and ability inclusion can be!
The company has also performed a number of regional fundraisers, most recently to benefit the fire and flood devastated towns of Bobin and Taree.
