“Evolution in concert” gives opera a new meaning

If one expected a typical opera concert at “Evolution in concert” staged at the Lionel Wendt, well then we were in for a surprise.

“Evolution in concert” saw hits from the likes of Coldplay, Leona Lewis and Queen being performed on stage with a a little twist.

But that was not all. A gourmet of Indian songs including ‘Jai Ho’ from the movie Slum Dog Millionaire were also performed to wow the audiance.

Natalie Gooneratne was the vocal director for “Evolution in concert” while Natasha Senanayake was the music director.
