Vienna to Broadway


Photographer: James Mitchell.eu

Vienna to Broadway was the second concert in the beautifully presented ´Concerts Under Canopy´ at Puerto Calero.

We bought our tickets early so not to be disappointed and after a short taxi ride and a respectable glass of Rioja, we took our seats in the open air theatre. Vienna to Broadway was an evening of pure pleasure as Glenys Roberts (Soprano), Hanah Pedley (Mezzo Soprano) Frances Hill (Piano) and the John Morgan (Baritone) each delivered outstanding performances. The evening´s programme included: Medleys from Ivor Novello, Lerner & Loewe, Johann Strauss, Lehar, Cole Porter and Offenbach.


Performances of solo, duets or when all three performed together including songs from West Side Story, Les Miserables, Oklahoma, Die Fledemaus, The Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado, Showboat, Evita, Porgy & Bess, Evita, Phantom of the Opera, to mane just some of the evening´s programme. Needless to say, it all ended too soon and with a resounding applause and a standing ovation the evening we had all waited so eagerly to enjoy had come to an end. It was a memorable, one and not just for ourselves, but for the island too as this is something very new here. But there are two more concerts planned this year and we are most certainly booking for the December evening, The Family Christmas Concert.

What a fabulous evening. We have a hotel called Kilworth House, near Leicester, that puts on similar evenings but quite low key compared to yours.

Thanks Rosalind for calling by, it was a great evening, but only the second one, all new to our little island.

I really enjoyed the first concert they held and couldn't make this one although my parents went and had a fabulous time. I can't wait for the Christmas one :)

Hi Jules, sadly we missed the first one, but more than enjoyed the second concert. Will certainly be going to more. Thanks for calling by. x
