Nicci Wilks delivers both physically and vocally filling the large fortyfivedownstairs warehouse space with ease in this one woman show.

This play is that guest at your dinner party who, with one potent observation, generates such discomfort that all assembled clamber for composure after the resonating truth has been spoken.

It’s been far too many Friday nights spent indoors and away from the luscious velvet curtains of the Princess Theatre and icy blonde locks of Draco Malfoy.

A small group of amateur actors, some professionals, no overarching theme for some ten minute plays. What could possibly go wrong?

I have heard many performances of this great work over the years, starting with Barenboim’s of the 1960s. But Levit’s gave me a new insight into it.

These concerts last just ten minutes, with the listener, the performer, and no-one else.

The concert Birds was part of a series of nine chamber music concerts held at the wonderful Ukaria centre near Mount Barker in the Adelaide hills.

This long and interesting concert was structured around Schoenberg’s extraordinary setting of 21 poems by the Belgian poet Albert Giraud, Pierrot Lunaire. Composed in 1912, the work created such a sensation that Stravinsky went all the way from Paris to Berlin to hear it.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This long-awaited show delivers all you can expect and is a veritable feast for the senses! As much fun as a Wonka Fudgie Wudgie (and as whimsical as a Whipple Scrumptious Fudgemallow Delight).

Every Brilliant Thing | Black Swan State Theatre Company of WA

Performed in-the-round, by marvellously talented Luke Hewitt, Every Brilliant Thing is a work of life affirming humour.

Eastern Promises | Opera Queensland

Before this concert began, Patrick Nolan, the artistic director of Opera Queensland, told us that we were in for a treat. But it was much more than that.
