Show receives overwhelming support

KARMEN — the new stage show being shown at USP Japan ICT Centre has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the crowd.

And, head of Oceania Centre Igelese Ete said it was the performers that did all the hard work, most of whom made their debut on stage.

"They gave their best and most passionate performance and it was an ideal kick off for Karmen. I am very proud of them," Mr Ete said.

He applauded his leading lady Ateca Ravouvou, who played Karmen, a seductive woman who enticed men with her beauty and presence.

"Ateca had never sung a solo before and it was a big thing for her to dance and sing as well on her debut. Peni Vadei who plays Iosefo also made his debut and it is just encouraging to see these young people develop themselves and deliver an important story like Karmen."

He said the next few shows promised to be better and stronger. "I had people from overseas that came up to me after the show and applauded the performances. To watch an opera overseas would cost someone $200 but people in Fiji get to watch Karmen for much less than that and they get so much from what they pay.

"This stage performance is unique and I encourage people to come out and support these young artists as well as see for themselves the messages portrayed in the performance."

Karmen will be shown at 8pm at the USP Japan ICT Centre until May 3.
