Reviews/Melbourne
I loved everything about Faith Healer, a play as modest, inventive and intriguing as its author appears to have been.

Embedded within the Adelaide Festival this year is a series of chamber music concerts called Chamber Landscapes, held in the Ukaria Cultural Centre in the Adelaide Hills.

Reviews/Sydney
Billed as “the superhero origin story of Shakespeare’s Henry V”, this is a production filled with confident zeal but sadly doomed to fail as spectacularly as the French defeat at Agincourt.

La Gaia Scienza. The Gay Science. Die Fröhliche Wissenschaft. Not many musical ensembles have, as far as I know named themselves after a book by Nietzsche. (Though why not? The Beyond Good and Evil wind quintet from Helsinki, perhaps…)

Reviews/Adelaide
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 riches.

Reviews/Canberra
Cold Light is an epic tale, across many years and many moods. So what relevance is such a setting to today? There are some obvious parallels: gender inequality, government control of free speech, the worship of youth.

Reviews/Perth
There are some beautiful young spirits in this cast, who attack each song with unbridled energy and enthusiasm. Their ability to hold both pitch and focus throughout a very warm performance was commendable.

Matilda is the kind of cult classic you don’t want to botch. It’s a novel that’s dear to many reader’s hearts (my own included), so the stakes are high.

Reviews/Sydney
Despite committed characterisations from the cast, Mark Colvin's Kidney feels like a mismatched transplant, a graft of verbatim on to a more traditional dramatic narrative which, at the end of the two hour operation, the host rejects.
