Le Petit Prince or The Little Prince is a most beloved tale by the French pilot, writer and aristocrat, Antoin de Saint-Exupéry. A fable that will resonate no matter how old you are or whatever your life story. 

Based on real life events, The Lifespan of a Fact dissects what happens when the truth gets in the way of a good story and the moral implications of elaboration.

Accompanied by the incredible Melbourne Sympathy Orchestra under the direction of Benjamin Northey, the comedic cabaret covid free powerhouse eventually arrived on stage to kick off two incredible hours over two fabulous evenings at our glorious Hamer Hall.

 This is a remarkable and very timely and pertinent play, expertly staged and directed by Libby Drake and masterfully (mistressfully?) acted by a very fine, large cast.

Opera lovers will get their fill of vibrato and resonance from the stand out performances of Helena Dix (Lady Macbeth)Adrian Tamburini (Banquo) and commanding presence of Samuel Sakker as Macduff.

Perth Symphony Orchestra certainly knows how to put on a spectacular show. 

David Ireland’s Ulster American hammers us with humour, hubris and hypocrisy.

The Music of the Night presented by Spears Entertainment indulged my love of all things spectacular with their tribute to the music of legendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.
