When the lights go up at the Comedy Festival, a warrior woman in full kit – helmet, sword and buckler – launches into a Wagnerian classic at full throttle accompanied by thunderous notes from the piano. “But wait”, she says, “I’m having you on. Do you really want to be spat on in German while trapped in your seat?”
So starts the hilarious one-woman (plus a mute pianist) show that illustrates the wide appeal of a lyric soprano in many guises, moods and melodies. Diva Unleashed with Eve Bourton is a smash hit with audience members of all ages. Selections from opera, pop, Broadway, ballad – familiar music from many genres and ages – all delivered in the ‘voice of an angel’ with a compelling and humorous story line.
Eve Bourton has the unique ability to hold a room in the palm of her hand and her voice can soothe or blow out the windows, just like all great sopranos. Laughs are guaranteed as Eve has been described as a ‘team’ in one body, comprising Lucille Ball, Maria Callas and Nigella Lawson.
