    TWO of our best opera singers are re-uniting to celebrate classical opera and musical theatre.

    Australia’s most famous female opera singer, Marina Prior will join Mark Vincent to perform at Blacktown Workers Club.

    They’ve performed together before.

    “It was two years ago in Canberra,” Vincent said. “I was overwhelmed when I met her — she’s the Sarah Brightman of Australia!

    “She has such a beautiful voice.”

    Prior told the Sun performing with Vincent, who won Australia’s Got Talent in 2009, was “terrific” and they worked well together on stage.

    Both the performers shared their idea of what makes a successful duet, and came to similar conclusions.

    “Your voices have to blend well together,” Prior said. “We both have to have the same understanding of the lyrics.

    “It wouldn’t work if the other singer thought the song meant something different to you.”

    Established: Marina Prior said she sees a younger and more inexperienced self in her duet partner, saying “there’s no steady climb for him – he’s growing and learning in front of an audience”.

    Prior said while some of those ideas are discussed beforehand, much of it comes from an intuitive understanding of the song: “It’s about having the same musical language.”

    Vincent had a similar sentiment, but added that chemistry was an essential ingredient.

    “It’s about communication,” he said.

    “It’s very important to get along.

    “If two voices are different, it doesn’t sound right.

    “They can tell when they get along and like each other — John Farnham and Olivia Newton John worked because they were friends.”

    Vincent said he was excited to be performing with Prior again and drawing from her experience.

    “She’s been in the business for 30 years,” he said. “It will be such a benefit to be performing with her.”

    The pair will perform a two-hour show with an orchestra.

    Details:Tickets are $30-$38 in the Diamond Showroom. 8pm, 55 Campbell Street, workersclub南京夜网419论坛.
