They have the voices of angels and their venue is a church, but Edmonton singers Ron Long and Clint Hagel are mighty irreverent throughout this 60-minute musical comedy.

Feigning blindness, Hagel enters with the aid of a cane before the opening song, blind tenor Andrea Bocelli’s hit The Prayer. And he gives a decidedly non-PC salute when their musical world tour touches down in Berlin.

But with straightman Long providing a chastening counterbalance, all sins are forgiven.

And the pair are note-perfect on the musical front. A classical medley during a puppet spoof of the Twilight movies is a hit — as are a few audience participation numbers — and the finale is truly glorious.

From the Fringe program:

After an exhaustive tour around the world, Il Duo is back!!

Come see fan favourites as well as new songs collected from around the world! Expect more zany comedy from this straight man/funny guy routine as well as some of the most beautiful singing heard at the Fringe.
