Metamorpho - Spinella Tenor of Illusions with Opening Act by Marcella Brown! MUSIC + MAGIC + MYSTERY = UNFORGETTABLE Imagine the mysteries of illusion flowing through the seductive powers of great music. Immerse yourself in another world where the heart lightens and the mind soars. You have entered the realm of Metamorpho, a ground-breaking show featuring Joseph Spinella, The Tenor of Illusions.
Be captivated by the 15-year-old singing sensation, Marcella Brown, as her soprano performance in the opening act sparkles onstage.
A seamless narrative of illusion and music, Metamorpho features the most loved Italian songs –traditional Neopolitan, “popera” and opera arias - sung by master tenor, Joseph Spinella, while he simultaneously astounds you with his wizardry onstage. Spinella’s voice has the power and majesty to convey the deep emotions of the cinematic original arrangements recorded by a full scale orchestra. This production, fully supported by colorful and varied costumes, set and extensive lighting and stage effects, is appropriate for all cultures and all ages while also being a most captivating means to introduce classical music to young people.
Characters appear and vanish, a beautiful woman morphs before your eyes and handkerchiefs come to life, dance and disappear. Darker images of death boxes, a head dropping off Spinella’s shoulders, corpses rising from the stage, a mirror with images appearing and vanishing, and flying lights are among the many astounding illusions that Spinella commands.
The narrative of the show flows from a point of beauty and joy through darker struggles faced by mankind – death and the fear of loss – and then emerging from the depths to a playful world full of hope and light, even a comedic mood. The journey ends with the grandest song of all – Puccini’s Nessun Dorma, a rousing Chinese drum-filled aria sung with a sense of triumph and power.
Spinella’s heartfelt singing and mastery of illusions make him a rare phenomenon in the world of entertainment today.
