REVIEW: The Ladykillers

The Genesian Theatre delivers yet another delightful vintage styled comedy crime thriller. The Ladykillers was written by Irish comedian Graham Linehan who also co-created Father Ted, Black Books, and The IT Crowd. It has the same absurd, character based humour as those popular comedy series. Five hapless criminals, led by the wily Professor Marcus (Marty […]

REVIEW: Colossus

The (almost) overwhelming production from Stephanie Lake, Colossus, is an activation of all the senses. With a bare stage and very muted costumes, Colossus, highlights the incredible talent and athleticism of 50 dancers, who give their all through the entire 50-minute performance. Using sharp choreography coupled with an intense soundtrack, Collosus, encourages an examination of community and an […]

REVIEW: La Bohème

Opera Australia’s summer season staging of La Bohème is a multi-cultural affair. Beneath Chinese and English subtitles, two phenomenal Asian born opera stars perform Puccini’s famous arias with breathtaking artistry. Australian-Chinese tenor Kang Wang’s portrayal of the love-struck poet Rodolfo is mesmerising. His performance ranks him as one of the world’s best tenors today. He is […]

REVIEW: Carmen

Arguably one of the most popular operas in any repertoire, Bizet’s Carmen is an easy pleaser due to its hit after hit collection of familiar tunes and its easy to follow storyline.
