On Friday, March 3, JUNO Award-winning vocal super-group and Canadian heartthrobs The Tenors will partner with One Drop to present the fifth anniversary of One Night for One Drop, an extraordinary, one-night-only experience supporting safe water access programs worldwide.
Taking place exclusively in the Zumanity Theatre at New York-New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, the event will feature a special performance of iconic rock songs by the award-winning trio, who will share the stage with the world-renowned artists of Cirque du Soleil.
“It is an honour and a thrill to be working with One Drop in such a creative way,” said The Tenors. “The incredible imaginations of everyone involved are absolutely inspiring, and we’re looking forward to performing legendary rock music for this spectacular show.”
Krista Monson, director of creation for the show, said, “With their unique style, unforgettable charm and outstanding vocal talent, we’re incredibly thankful to have them on board. Not only will they bring their sublime artistry and talent to the show, but the directors have given The Tenors roles that propel the story to add yet another level of meaning and powerful significance to their performance. With the added creativity of The Tenors, the result will be truly momentous.”
Presented by MGM Resorts International, One Night for One Drop 2017 will focus on the concept of time, drawing inspiration from one pivotal phrase: ‘We are the first generation to feel the impact of climate change and the last generation to do something about it.’ Centering around the idea that time is running out for humanity to right its wrongs, the show will build on this concept through the journey of an ill-tempered circus Ringmaster and his loyal assistant.
Nicky and Laetitia Dewhurst, writers and directors for the show, said, “We created the old Ringmaster to represent humanity and its treatment of Mother Earth. He is given the opportunity to travel back in time to witness his younger self at the center of a magnificent, vintage circus. Once there, he begins to realize his mistakes and, in a sensational twist of events, wishes to fix his feelings of regret. But is it too late? That’s the question we want to ask our audience.”
Once back in time, the audience will be a part of a highly theatrical, comedic and daring spectacle, with breathtaking circus acts to propel the story. Elevated by the outstanding powerhouse vocals of The Tenors, the event will feature songs performed live by the trio, culminating in a dazzling finale.
