This theatrical version of Mozart’s Requiem might occasionally shock some who attend, but it is compelling for both its music and artistic vision. Voices, dance, and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra combine to create an enthralling work.
It’s claimed that nostalgia ain’t what it used to be, but it’s indisputable that An Andrews Sisters Tribute time-shifts the Norwood Concert Hall with a charming program and polished performance that captivates its audience. ★★★★
Uplifting? You bet. The Soweto Gospel Choir’s performance at Adelaide Fringe underlines the compelling nature of a well-conducted choir with material arranged to highlight their talents. ★★★ ½
The opening performance in the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s 2020 season – and the first Master Series concert of the year – sought to represent a sense of adventure.
Billed as Magical Tchaikovsky, the ASO’s latest Master Series performance incorporated Wagner and Mozart, too, and that isn’t a bad road to travel. In fact, it produced a lively program of contrasts and masterful music-making.
Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operetta The Mikado is the most recognisable and most performed of their works. Delivered with fine singing and clever stage presentation, this Adelaide production of the 1885 show is vibrant and charming.
