Fangorn: The Opera – New Contemporary Opera set in Middle-earth

by Mar 6, 2000Other News

Fangorn - Tolkien's VisionSharon sent me an email with the following info… Hmm… Perhaps people are going a bit too far in the “artistic” interpretations of Tolkien’s masterpiece…

I saw a poster for an opera called “Fangorn” to be
held here in Wellington. I called the ticket sellers
(0800 2 266548). It is by J.C. Harper (anyone ever
heard of them?) and is described as a “new
contemporary opera set in Middle-Earth” featuring
characters from LOTR telling their stories in song.
The music styles range from country-western to jazz,
opera etc.

The company putting it on is the Roundwheel Music
Company (never heard of them), and it is on March 11
and 12th. Tickets are $15 or $12 concession.

If anybody gets a chance to see it, go right ahead and email me so the rest of us can know precisely how they managed to incorporate country music into Middle-earth (oh, and by the way, I hear Treebeard has a great falsetto 😉 ).
