Reviews/Melbourne
Written in the early 90's, this story of sex, lies and journalism set in Melbourne and Manila is still relevant and punchy today.

Pinchgut only perform one opera a year, but their production of Cavalli’s 17th century hit, Giasone, would make you think they played baroque opera constantly, so at ease was everyone with the style.

This is an interesting portrait of a person, but a powerful exploration of personal choice in the face of wider societal expectations.

A dark open mouth of a proscenium arch, hemmed with a moustache of broken, missing or faded light bulbs. A thin, endless branch arcs into the sky. Grey, brick-worked waste land. Two men, like tattered coats upon a sticks, wait.
