Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Il Duo: World Tour
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.
