For lovers of musicals or of ballet, seeing these two outstanding performers is an utter privilege.

Themes of distance, isolation and aging permeate in a mix of highly stylised abstract dance and text-based theatre.

The splendid Adelaide Symphony Orchestra teamed with the Elder Conservatorium Chorale and the Graduate Singers to present a brilliantly conceived program of seldom heard music

Intense, suspenseful, mystifying and intriguing. The audience is left pondering the meaning, the process and the outcome.

Suspense and surprise go south in North by Northwest, substituted with cheesy cheer east of Edam.

This is no traditional re-telling of the mismatched romance, fairies, and foolishness of yore. The team at Sheoak have turned the tables, setting the scene in fair Kings Cross, Sydney, 1983.

Our ears had been purified, refined into the most subtle distinctions of resonance by baroque harp and voice, so that the sound of a modern wind quintet burst on our ears like a thunderstorm after gentle sunshine.

This venue, purpose built for chamber music, has been described as the best chamber music concert hall in Australia.
