The PreTenors:

An Evening of Operatic Comedy with a Cavalcade of Stars

Saturday October 18, 2014
8 PM
$42 + 2.50 Facility Fee

The PreTenors are making a return engagement with their unique brand of Operatic Comedy.

The show consists of some of the greatest operatic arias of all time (Nessun Dorma, La Donna Mobile and Torna a Surriento to name a few) as well as some more modern fare as they venture into Broadway, Pop and a taste of classics from the silver screen.

The Operatic Comedy of The PreTenors is in the send-up of the three larger-than-life personalities: Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras.

Pavarotti becomes “Paparazzi”, a man of huge ego and appetites who conducts the evening’s festivities and has an inexhaustible supply of food items that magically appear and are consumed mid-song. Kieran Martin Murphy is the one tasked with bringing this larger-than-life personality to the stage.

Domingo transforms into “Placebo Domingo”, a man who is impeccably manicured and believes he is not only the greatest of tenors, but the most handsome as well.

Carreras simply changes to “Whocarras”, the third and almost completely forgotten tenor who is constantly trying to prove his worth to the other two, and tries desperately to get their attention. St. Albert performer Trent Worthington brings his charm to this character.

The PreTenors have been performing together for 18 years and their hugely popular show has travelled across North America and has sold out at numerous Edmonton Fringe Festivals. Also gracing the stage alongside them will be some of their ‘celebrity’ friends. You never know who will stop by…Mick Jagger? Bryan Adams? Patsy Cline? Dolly Parton? You won’t know 'til you’re there.

Delight in the company of Joseph Boyden, multi award-winning author and winner of Canada Reads for his novel The Orenda.

STARFest Facts

Joseph Boyden

Novelist and short-story writer of Irish, Scottish and Métis descent, Joseph Boyden grew up in Willowdale, Ontario in the ’70s and now divides his time between Northern Ontario and Louisiana, where he teaches Canadian literature and creative writing at the University of New Orleans.

The focus of Boyden’s writing has been on the historical and contemporary experience of the First Nations peoples of Northern Ontario. Boyden’s first novel, Three Day Road, won many awards, among them the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize, the CBA Libris Fiction Book of the Year Award, and was shortlisted for the Governor General’s Award for Fiction.

The Orenda

His second novel, Through Black Spruce, was awarded the Scotiabank Giller Prize and named the Canadian Booksellers Association Fiction Book of the Year; it also earned him the CBA’s Author of the Year Award.

His most recent novel, The Orenda, won Canada Reads and was nominated for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and the Governor General’s Award for Fiction.

Diana Davidson’s debut novel Pilgrimage, set on a Métis settlement in the 1890s, was published last year. It was shortlisted for the 2014 Alberta Readers’ Choice Awards.

Yann Martel

The Power of Literature

Wine Reception

Event and reception
sponsored by:

Weary & Co. Law Office

Wednesday, October 29, 2014
7 PM
$10

Discover the power of literature and storytelling as award-winning author, Yann Martel discusses his book, and subsequent Oscar-winning movie, Life of Pi, his latest novel, Beatrice and Virgil, as well as his letter writing campaign to Stephen Harper.

STARFest Facts

Life of Pi

Yann Martel was born in Spain of peripatetic French-Canadian parents. He grew up in Alaska, British Columbia, Costa Rica, France, Ontario and Mexico, and has continued travelling as an adult. After studying philosophy and while doing odd jobs – tree planter, dishwasher, security guard – he began to write. His first book, The Facts Behind the Helsinki Roccamatios, was a short story collection which won the Journey Prize; his second novel, Self, was a fictional autobiography.

Life of Pi, adapted as a play and later for film, was shortlisted for a Governor General’s Award and won the Man Booker Prize for Fiction. The story of an Indian teenager stranded in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with a tiger and other animals was a resounding success, making Martel an internationally recognized author.

Martel’s third novel, Beatrice and Virgil, was published in 2010. His most recent work is 101 Letters to a Prime Minister: The Complete Letters to Stephen Harper.
