MELBA A New Musical

MELBA A New MusicalMELBA A New Australian Musical developed through New Musicals Australia will play Hayes Theatre Co from August 11 with the season extended to September 9.

Dame Nellie Melba, played by Emma Matthews, was the most celebrated singer of her generation. Lauded on more than three continents as a phenomenon, her life was the stuff that dreams are made of, but her journey to the top was not always untroubled. Nellie Mitchell originally from Melbourne, to the stages of opera houses across Europe, MELBA charts the life of a woman who was determined to be the best in a conservative world. Melba’s life was filled with triumph and tragedy, stardom and shame - a story that is little known beyond her stellar career.

Joining Emma Matthews is a stellar cast; Annie Aitken, Michael Beckley, Caitlin Berry, Andrew Cutcliffe, Blake Erickson, Genevieve Lemon, Adam Rennie and Samuel Skuthorp
