“Opera Rocks” is a classic love story in which a rock star makes his way into the life of a soprano. The story is presented to the audience by a narrator (Mário Rui Filipe) that introduces us to the lives of rock artist Freddy and opera diva Maria. The part of Freddy is performed by Ray van Duijvenbode, who is a rock singer and a guitar player. The lyrical soprano, Carla Pontes, will play the part of Maria. They will be accompanied on the piano by Cristiana Silva.
According to the production, “the show will range from powerful rock to delicate classical music, and from intense opera to subtle rock music, beautifully brought together in new and original arrangements”.
