Noosa – Brace yourselves for a magical experience as three virtuoso musicians and entertainers, celebrated for their individual brilliance, unite on the stage for two exclusive performances at The J in Noosa on February 24.
Internationally acclaimed flutist Jane Rutter, opera heartthrob bass-baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes, and the quick-witted pianist Guy Noble are set to enchant audiences in a matinee at 2 pm and an evening performance at 7:30 pm.
Tickets for this Noosa premiere are in high demand, promising a close and intimate concert featuring highlights from their illustrious careers. The repertoire includes beloved arias from opera and musical theatre, virtuoso flute classics, and enchanting Celtic and traditional folk songs. Audiences can anticipate renditions of masterpieces by Mozart, Vivaldi, Rossini, Bizet, Ravel, Offenbach, as well as compositions by Rodgers & Hammerstein and Gilbert & Sullivan.
Themed “Figaro, Flutes, and Flowers,” the concert showcases the trio’s exceptional talents. Jane Rutter, set to play six different flutes and whistles during the performance, describes the irrepressible trio as “quite theatrical” in their performance style.
“Teddy has theatrical, opera, and musical comedy flair, whereas Guy and I have instrumental classical prowess mixed with our cabaret and musical theatre backgrounds,” said Jane.
Both Teddy and Jane, classified as belcanto performers, beautifully merge their talents. Jane, known for her flute mastery in the French style, treats the instrument as a voice, creating a harmonious blend of flute and voice. Teddy Tahu Rhodes, recognized as one of the world’s best bass baritones, adds a thrilling dimension to the performance.
The concert promises surprises, with Jane playfully stealing Teddy’s famous Figaro cadenza from Rossini’s “Largo al Factotum” and improvising on piccolo. Guy Noble, a brilliant raconteur, seamlessly contributes to the theatricality on stage.
“We all go with the flow, so you can expect quips throughout the concert. All three of us love to include the audience in the musical journey, our intention is for everyone in the theatre to experience a sense of belonging and well-being – for the concert to be like a long musical embrace,” Jane explained.
“Figaro, Flutes, and Flowers” is not just a concert; it is a captivating fusion of talent, humor, and audience engagement, promising a memorable experience for all fortunate enough to attend this exclusive event.
