Perfect remake

PERFECTION is everything as preparations for the stage musical Domo ni Karmen get underway for the show on April 24 at the Japan ICT Centre.

The head of the USP's Oceania Centre, Igelese Ete, said the 2009 remake would be better, have more edge and Fijian feel but still be set in the same structure.

"Rehearsals are now getting very hectic, as it does when nearing production week," Ete said.

"And the whole production team and cast are up for the task — to create another inspiring world class production, especially with the amazing raw talent available here in Suva, Fiji."

The stage musical is about a Karmen, a Fijian girl living in a traditional village. Karmen arrives from the city and disrupts the established order of rural women in the village.

"We are feeling excited but also revved up to ensure that the music is prepared.

"And of course for Larry Thomas and myself, it's getting the cast and production team primed to deliver a great performance," Ete said.

"This stage musical acknowledges the talent we have in Fiji and this is another platform we can see that talent.

"It's like the rugby talent — it's world class and we want to establish it to ensure that a lot of people from overseas can come and watch this type of show."

Ete said with more time to prepare for the stage musical, they hoped to perfect each area of the production.
