Fiddler On The Roof

Event Date: 21/10/2018, 05:00 pm

Moriah College presents Fiddler on the Roof - October 2018
Fiddler is one of the greatest and most loved musicals of all time, capturing the hearts and imagination of audiences around the world.
It centres on village milkman Tevye, husband to Golde and father of five daughters, attempting to maintain his Jewish religious and cultural traditions as outside influences in turn-of-the-century Russia encroach upon the lives of the family and the entire village.

Full of humour, warmth, great characters and spectacular, show-stopping numbers like “Tradition”, “If I Were a Rich Man”, “Matchmaker”, “Sunrise, Sunset” and “To Life!”, its premiere (which featured Zero Mostel, Bette Middler, Julia Migenes and Beatrice Arthur among others!) ran to 3000 shows on Broadway. It won nine Tony Awards and has since been performed in almost every country on earth. The Hollywood adaptation starring Topol won 3 Oscars.

Moriah’s production of Fiddler on the Roof promises to be a breathtaking theatrical experience and the perfect event to crown the school’s 75th Anniversary celebrations.

Renowned for spectacular musicals that showcase its talented musicians, vocalists and actors, the school last staged the iconic show in 1994. Then, as now, it was helmed by indefatigable Director of Music and Co-curricular, Roberta Goot OAM.

“Fiddler is the perfect choice,” Goot explains. “It is a beautifully crafted musical. Every song is memorable and it is full of great music and timeless wisdom. It is steeped in ‘traditions’ as we are at Moriah and, more than anything, is a story of family: it speaks to the challenges we all still face in some way – and highlights the need for balance, just like the fiddler!”

This historic production features current students as young as 9 as well alumni, current parents, parents of alumni, staff members, even grandparents!
Rehearsals have been taking place over many months and the level of professionalism, attention to detail, effort and resources employed point to a definitive production.

THE DIRECTOR By Nancy Hasty

Event Date: 26/10/2018, 07:30 pm

SEDUCTION, COMPLICITY & WHITE-KNUCKLE SUSPENSE
The Director, by US writer Nancy Hasty, is set to open at the Actors Pulse Playhouse in Redfern.
And it’s bound to create intense debate among performers and theatre lovers alike.
In a run-down rehearsal studio in New York, theatre director Peter now works as a janitor
in exchange for being able to use the rehearsal spaces to conduct his 'research into acting'.
After he meets an award-winning playwright, Annie, he reluctantly agrees to direct her new play
after she expresses dissatisfaction with the existing director and the actors that director has cast.

Peter adopts a highly unconventional and controversial approach as he challenges each actor who auditions
to a series of exercises designed to test their abilities and push them to truly ‘live’ their parts.
But how far should he push before someone slips over the edge?
As the line between reality and fantasy blurs, the director becomes a master manipulator,
pulling strings and pushing his vulnerable young protégés.
Is he a genius or a control freak? The ante keeps rising until the game becomes a matter of life and death.
The original production of The Director – starring Emmy Award-winner John Shea - ran off-Broadway for six months in 2000.
It’s no coincidence that Active Theatre Production’s artistic director Simon Doctor is directing and starring in its Australian premiere.
Simon worked on numerous theatre projects in New York with the playwright, his good friend and sometime housemate, Nancy Hasty.

The Director also features Josephine Bloom, Alex Rowe, Brayden Palmer, Sarah Greenwood and Emilia Hristov.

The Seraphim Trio: Schumann Quintet

Event Date: 28/10/2018, 02:30 pm

Schumann Quintet and Korngold Suite for Delicious North Sydney Spring Concert
Sydney Symphony Concertmaster Andrew Haveron and violist Jacqueline Cronin join Seraphim Trio to perform Schumann's masterpiece, the Quintet in E flat major at the Independent Theatre late October.
The Sunday afternoon treat is part of the popular Prelude in Tea series that includes a mouth-watering selection of cakes and refreshements.

By pairing the keyboard as an equal partner with the established string quartet, Schumann invents an electrifying new genre capable of bringing chamber music out of the private salon and into the public concert hall.

To be equally treasured is Korngold's gorgeous Suite Op. 23 for two violins, cello and keyboard.
The suite was commissioned by left-handed pianist Paul Wittgenstein and reveals Korngold's Late Viennese heritage, combining a rich lyricism with modern rhythmic vitality.

Lake Honghu In Concert

Event Date: 04/11/2018, 08:00 pm

A CLASSIC OPERA ‘THE RED GUARDS ON LAKE HONGHU’
After 60 years of success and more than 3000 shows and now performing for the first time out of China in an Australian first, Hubei Symphony Orchestra of Hubei Provincial Opera and Dance Drama Theatre presents a modern concert production of the classic Chinese opera, Lake Honghu featuring seven principal singers and a chorus of forty.

These milestone concerts will take place at the Sydney Opera House on November 4 with celebrated Australian guest conductor Vanessa Scammell (My Fair Lady, The Merry Widow, South Pacific) and Melbourne Recital Centre led by resident conductor Luo Yilin on November 7 & 8.

The original opera was first performed in 1958 in Wuhan and was staged in Beijing in October 1959. Based on the true story, Han Ying and Liu Chuang led a team of guardians defending their homeland in the scenic Lake Honghu area in the summer of 1930. Interesting to note by means of its famous lake, Honghu City produces forty kinds of fish and an abundance of plants, such as the lotus, reed and a type of lack algae.

Blending western style opera with traditional Chinese and Hubei folk songs and lyrical ballad, the melody is cheerful, full of passion and shows the revolutionary pioneer’s love of the hometown and hope for the happy lives and future. The music structure contains both strength of the Chinese traditional opera and English Opera. The lyrics and the music tell the story and focus on emphasising the character’s internal emotions.
