The internationally awarded Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Victoria (GSOV) presents a popular light opera gem, Die Fledermaus (The Bat), in only four performances, 26-28 July, 2019, at Darebin Arts Centre, Preston.
Absent from Melbourne’s music scene for ten years, this production features GSOV’s principal singers, full chorus and orchestra, glamourous period costume, dancers whirling to Johann Strauss’ charming waltzes and director Robert Ray’s witty English adaptation of the libretto.
Brent Lyall is at the top of his game and should be on top of the world: captain of the most powerful football club in Australia, he has two medals and a beautiful girlfriend on his arm; but something is holding him back from being the charismatic hero everyone expects.
CONSIDER yourself at home with the award-winning musical Oliver! at the Koorliny Arts Centre in July 2019.
Presented by Laughing Horse Productions and directed by Adam Salathiel, the show is based on the Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist and follows the adventures of a young orphan in 19th century England.
The title character encounters numerous setbacks in his quest to find security and happiness, after being sold from an orphanage to a cruel undertaker and then falling in with a gang of young pickpockets.
