Have you heard about the upcoming musical by The Villages High School, CURTAINS?

Based on the original book and concept of the same name by Peter Stone, the musical is a send-up of backstage murder mystery plots, set in 1959 Boston, Massachusetts.

On opening night of 'Robbin' Hood of the Old West', the supremely untalented star (Jessica Cranshaw) is murdered! It is up to Lt. Frank Cioffi, a police detective who dreams of being in musical theater, to save the show, solve the case, and maybe even find love before the show reopens, without getting killed himself!

With a book by Rupert Holmes (Mystery of Edwin Drood and "Escape (The Piña Colada Song)"); lyrics by Fred Ebb and music by John Kander (Cabaret and Chicago), this is sure to be a crowd-pleaser!

Opera Voice Types with OPERA LOCOS!
The Mezzo, portrayed by Mayca Teba

A mezzo or mezzo-soprano is the middle singing voice, coming right between soprano and contralto. While mezzos can be seductive heroines (like Carmen or Delilah), composers also often use these voices to portray mothers, caretakers, and villainesses. Some mezzo singers with lighter voice qualities are used to play pre-adolescent male characters, also called “pants roles.”

Famous mezzo-soprano roles: Rosina from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, Carmen from George Bizet’s Carmen, and Amneris from Verdi’s Aida

Famous mezzo-soprano singers: Cecilia Bartoli, Joyce DiDonato, and Elīna Garanča.

Opera Voice Types with OPERA LOCOS!
The Baritone, portrayed by Enrique Sánchez-Ramos

The baritone is the most common type of male voice sitting midway between the high tenor voice and the low bass voice. In comedic operas, he is often the leader of the funny business, but he can also be the hero, who sacrifices himself for the tenor or soprano, or the villain. Many of the most exciting male roles in operas are sung by baritones. The term baritone itself comes from the Greek for "barys"—meaning "deep" or "low"—and "tonos" for "tone."

Famous baritone roles: Count Almaviva from Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, Figaro from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, Toréador Escamillo in Bizet's Carmen, and Marcello from Puccini’s La Bohème.

Famous baritone singers: Sherrill Milnes, Mariusz Kwiecień, and José Van Dam.

Opera Voice Types with OPERA LOCOS!
The Countertenor, portrayed by Edwin Monclova

A countertenor is the highest male singing voice with a range similar to that of a mezzo-soprano or contralto. Countertenor singers typically rely on their head voice, or falsetto, to hit the notes they need. Countertenors are rare in the opera world, and tend to sing Baroque roles that were originally written for castrati.

Famous countertenor roles: Akhnaten from Glass’s Akhnaten, Oberon from Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Julius Caesar from Handel’s Julius Caesar

Famous countertenor singers: Anthony Roth Costanzo, Philippe Jaroussky, Jakub Józef Orliński, and Bejun Mehta.
