FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Uniting dozens of Toronto popular and classical musicians with performance and visual artists, PATRIZIA is bringing the whimsy of large-scale theatre, opera, rock and “cirque” to an accessible, local level.
Fusing a glorious 4-octave soprano voice with brazen rock n' roll instrumentation, PATRIZIA's passion for the blending of eclectic aesthetics, art, fashion and sounds is clear and breathtaking to behold. On May 31st, 2013, join PATRIZIA as she unveils her Phantom of the Rock Opera – a spectacle for the senses, in collaboration with over a dozen local Toronto artists and performers – at the Virgin Mobile Mod Club!
Poring through an overwhelming number of spectacular local bands whose musical visions complement her own, PATRIZIA filled the bill out with Die By Remote, The Apollo Effect and JK Mantis.
To create a spectacle whose pageantry truly befits this diva’s exceptional dramatic coloratura voice, PATRIZIA has enlisted a small army of performers, among them: a string quartet, aerialist Katelyn McCulloch of No Parachute Theatre, Ontario champion pole dancer Kiran Friesen and DJ Elektrophix, all joining forces to transform the Virgin Mobile Mod Club into an intimate extravaganza of the arts!
A SOCAN award-winner with a handful of Bravo! videos to her name, PATRIZIA’s releases The Edge of Emotion (produced by the late Kenny McLean of Platinum Blonde) and My Beloved (produced by Steve Thompson of Guns n’ Roses and Metallica fame) have garnered her critical acclaim from the popular and classical worlds alike. Her last release, I Am Patrizia, featuring a cover of Queen’s epic “Show Must Go One” won the praise of Dr. Brian May himself! Having explored the classical crossover world, Patrizia is bringing together a show borne purely of her own artistic vision and passions.
“If you think Mariah Carey had a voice that just went on forever, with the power to pierce wonderfully tiny holes in your eardrums, then dahling, prepare for the next level of vocal acrobatics from Canadian super-soprano Patrizia.” – FAB Magazine
