‘Night time sharpens, heightens each sensation’, the opening line to the masterful song ‘Music of the Night’ from Phantom of the Opera just one of the fabulous songs being sung by performance company Opera Eagles Nest who are touring South West Queensland this November 2020.
A Touch of Andrew Lloyd Webber A Taste of Tim Rice covers not only the collaboration between these two giants of music. The concert covers songs done with other composers and lyricists they also worked and produced with, such as Elton John, Benny Andersson and Björn Kristian of Abba, Don Black (of ‘Born Free’ the movie fame) and Alan Menken who co-wrote the song ‘A Whole New World’ from Aladdin with Tim Rice.
Rice and Lloyd Webber met in 1965, aged 20 and 17 respectively, and co-wrote Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat as a school play, staging it professionally after the success of Jesus Christ Superstar in 1971.
Joining Producer performer Howard Edmunds are tenor Glenn Lorimer and soprano Tania Edmunds and talented young soprano Natasha Fagence recently of Queensland Conservatorium of Music.
An evening of fabulous songs, great singing and laughter is the perfect pick-me-up ending to 2020.
