Strictly Broadway delivers spectacular performance

The concert attracted mostly the elderly from different parts of Gauteng.

The audience at the Strictly Broadway concert on February 18 was captivated by marvellous voices as opera singers poured their hearts out through music at the Theatre of Marcellus at Emperors Palace.

The concert saw close to a 1 000 opera lovers making their way to the theatre.

This spectacular performance was accompanied by dancers who left the crowd in awe while displaying their choreography with an elegance that matched their repertoire to every song.

The singers’ voices and the lit-up stage were the centre of attention.

The band exuded passion as they handled their on-stage musical equipment producing sweetening melodies.
