My Fair Lady | Opera Australia and John Frost

Tue, 21 Mar 2017

L’Orfeo | Concerto Italiano

Wed, 8 Mar 2017

Three decades of immersion in the particular performance idioms of the early 17th century have given them an authenticity which sounds completely natural, indeed which convinces from the very outset that this is the only way that Monteverdi’s music can reveal all of its ri...

As an admirer of Damien Callinan’s solo shows seen in Fringe World previously, I was somewhat concerned this show might descend into an overblown comic pastiche of wine connoisseurs getting further and further blotto and untidy.

Fondly remembered in last year’s Fringe for their hilarious show Desperate and Dateless, 2017 heralds the return of the glamorous and superbly talented a capella quartet to the Fringe World Festival.

The writing is witty, incisive and timeless, a gift for comedians and actors. It is also a comment on American values and democracy, and a call to the individual to stand up against corruption.
