Carmen The Musical
An 18-year-old Carmen?! A 15-year-old Escamillo?! (Indeed, all the cast was well under 30.) Unheard of! Sacrilege! Yet, it worked a treat!

Madeleine Peyroux
The beautifully delicate crooning of Madeleine Peyroux, weighted with pained honesty of heart ache, loneliness and yearning, seems to be more suited to a more intimate venue rather than the vast space of the State Theatre.

A Midsummer Nights Dream
Yohangza Theatre Company, has not produced a traditional treatment of the play. Bearing from South Korean, they have infused the production with Korean mythology, theatrical techniques and an Eastern sensibility.

Kaidan
‘Total theatre’ will only work if all elements are strong, and indeed Meryl Tankard’s direction, choreography and design in Kaidan: A Ghost Story brings an explosive fusion of art-forms.

Lost and Found Orchestra
Lost and Found Orchestra, presented at the Sydney Festival by highly regarded British theatrical music company, The Stomp Company, is as joyful as it is inventive, as accessible as it is complex and as entertaining as it is original.

No Chance In Hell Hotel
Written by its stars, Kate Smith and Drew Fairley it’s a farce in which a lovelorn crippled cop and a pert, determined sidekick provide the hook on which to hang a tenuous thriller where love conquers all.

Redheads
Redheads follows the melodramatic lives of Ruth (Beth Champion) and Joanna (Emily Weare), two wannabe ‘twenty something’ spinsters who just want to feel loved.

Raymonda

Luxurious, romantic, beautiful and innocent, Raymonda is an intelligent and refreshing adaptation of Petipa’s original work.
