Candyce – An Opera In Four Acts

Blending an epic love story with the intrigue of murder and the struggle of a woman to extricate herself from male domination, Candyce is a full-length pop opera rendered in a wide variety of genres: electronica, classical, alt-rock, trip-hop, and other eclectic styles that defy categorization.  

In his previous release, the solo song cycle I Been Around, S.Fairbank crafted compelling music around the story of a character’s ascent, decline and retribution. With the experience of writing around a central concept using a hybrid of classical and electronic instrumentation, he took the idea to the next level with Candyce

The story of Candyce revolves around a charismatic free spirit who glides through life on the support of a large network of admirers, some of whom are affluent romantic partners. One night at a bar she encounters two men who compete for her attention, and from there events unfold creating life-altering consequences – some tragic, some euphoric – for all characters.

The cast features a stellar lineup of singers featuring Phoebe Street, Calvin Arsenia, and Charissa Whillock.
