Death by Soprano - An A-Z cabaret romp through operatic occupational hazards
Redland Performing Arts Centre

Sopranos must die, it’s the rule of opera!

In a futile attempt to escape operatic tragedy, a soprano sings her way through a gauntlet of operatic occupational hazards, from ‘A for Avalanche’ to ‘S for Suicide’ - if she got to ‘Z’ it wouldn’t be opera! Complete with outlandish props and costumes, and an impressive set of pipes, this tongue-in-cheek cabaret has a higher death toll than a Hollywood blockbuster.

Death by Soprano is the latest creation of internationally renowned actor, soprano and cabaret artist Isabel Hertaeg. Utilising slapstick, absurdism, dark-clowning and a healthy dose of prop-humour, Hertaeg portrays the final moments in the lives of operatic heroines.

This is a cabaret work with a great love of opera; that also embraces a loving irreverence for opera’s occasionally over-inflated ego. Whether you are an ‘operaphile’ or an ‘operaphobic’ you will love this rollercoaster ride of side-splitting black-humour. It’s not over until the soprano is dead!
