After a two-year hiatus, the beloved Fur Rondy Melodrama, featuring voices of the Alaska Sound Celebration chorus, returned live on stage in 2023! Thanks to everyone who came out to support the chorus and the show. Can't wait to see you next year!
A brief Melodrama history
For the past 30 years, Alaska Sound Celebration members have been the creative force behind the Fur Rondy Melodrama, one of the most successful events of the Festival held in Anchorage every winter. Each year, the Melodrama is played in front of sell-out audiences over three weekend runs: Friday nights, and Saturday and Sunday matinees and evening performances.
Each year, Chorus members are involved in writing, producing, set building and costume making, as well as starring in the Melodrama. One of the most popular and fun elements of the Melodrama is the popcorn throwing. Audience members young and old delight in throwing popcorn at the cast, the chorus and each other! From miners to pirates, zombies to Vikings, we've done it all!
