FREE TIX - A Midsummer Night's DreamLysander loves Hermia and Hermia loves Lysander. Helena loves Demetrius and Demetrius used to love Helena but now loves Hermia. Egeus, Hermia's father, prefers Demetrius as a suitor and enlists the aid of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to enforce his wishes upon his daughter. According to Athenian law, Hermia is given four days to choose between Demetrius, life in a nunnery, or a death sentence. Hermia, ever defiant, chooses to escape with Lysander into the surrounding forest.

This is when complications arise....

A Midsummer Night’s Dream | 2021 Adelaide Festival

The bewildering confusion between dream and reality begins before one takes one’s seat in the theatre. You have to negotiate a building site and enter the Adelaide Festival Theatre by a side entrance (how like slipping into dream that is!), and put on a mask, so that it seems that the audience is itself on stage.

Songs of Love and Death | Jane Sheldon and Alex Raineri

At this moment in our cultural history, as Australia emerges gradually from the restrictions imposed because of Covid 19, each live concert is a particularly reviving and refreshing experience.

A German Life | 2021 Adelaide Festival

The cast of one is Robyn Nevin, and it was no surprise that her performance was riveting.

Diana Doherty and Streeton Trio | 2021 Adelaide Festival

The revelation of this concert to me was that, yes, musicians, like audiences, have been starved of live performance opportunities for the last year, but that has given musicians plenty of time to practice, time that isn't always there during normal concert life for successful groups such as The Streeton Trio.

The Pulse | Gravity & Other Myths

What a Pulse the acrobats exhibited! What unanimity, what complicity in their formation and deformation of their complex body structures!
