Elektra/Orestes | Belvoir

In this reworking of the Electra myth, writers Jada Alberts and Anne-Louise Sarks remain true to the heightened style of Greek tragedy, using archetypal characters to keep the narrative tightly focussed on the major theme of the tragedy of intergenerational family violence.

As You Like It | Bell Shakespeare

We laugh in the right places, and marvel appropriately at John Bell’s pitch perfect rendition of the iconic Seven Ages of Man speech. But, Bell aside, there’s not much in here to elevate this production above the serviceable.

Faust | Opera Australia

The success of this production lies in the combination of great singing and dancing on an attractive looking set that manages to feel strangely contemporary thanks to the costume, set and lighting design.

Madama Butterfly | Opera Australia

The performers are world-class, but what really makes this production an extravagant indulgence is the set design and costumes. While visually spellbinding, they also provide their own sonic aesthetic quality that makes this more than just another opera.
