Theresienmesse & Magnificat presented by City Choir Dunedin

Sunday, July 3, 2016

The concert starts at 3:00 pm

SOLOISTS Lois Johnston (soprano), Claire Barton (mezzo-soprano), James Adams (tenor), Matthew Landreth (bass)

Joseph Haydn: Theresienmesse
CPE Bach: Magnificat

Haydn’s Theresienmesse was composed late in his life, after his final ‘London’ symphonies, and a year after he completed both. The Creation and the Missa in Angustiis or ‘Nelson Mass’, and it possesses similar qualities of tunefulness, variety, rhythmic energy, contrapuntal skill and colourful orchestration. It is a joyful festive work, written to celebrate the name-day of the wife of his patron Prince Esterhazy, and to demonstrate the high status of the Prince’s court at a time when Haydn was at the peak of his fame and creative powers.

Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bachʼs Magnificat is an extended setting of the Hymn of Mary, which is an integral part of the service of Vespers in both the Roman Catholic and Lutheran church. Composed for a festal occasion, this is an exuberant and tuneful work, with extended virtuosic and dramatic arias for each of the four soloists. It was his first major choral work, and was clearly inspired by his father Johann Sebastian’s setting of the same text; Bach returned to the work towards the end of his life, enhancing the orchestration and performing it several times.

Tickets are available from the Regent Theatre box office or from the Forsyth Barr Stadium Gate J, or phone 0800 111 999

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Saturday, June 25, 2016

Give yourself over to absolute pleasure.....

In Jim Sharman’s 1975 musical horror comedy starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick, newly engaged couple Brad Majors and Janet Weiss find themselves lost and with a flat tire on a cold and rainy late November evening, somewhere near Denton, Ohio. Seeking a telephone, the couple walk to a nearby castle where they discover a group of strange and outlandish people who are holding an Annual Transylvanian Convention.

Brad and Janet are soon swept into the world of Dr. Frank N. Furter, a self-proclaimed “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania”.

The BBC says The Rocky Horror Picture Show is “for those willing to experiment with something a little bit different, a little bit outré… ”

Get your hot patootie down to the Regent Theatre and rose tint our world with your sweet transvestite, wild, untamed costumes – there may be prizes…..

We want everyone to have a rocking good time so if you want to dance, please book seats in the stalls. If you just want to watch the film, it will be best to choose seats in the circle.
