Singing from the age of 15, Mark Vincent has gone on to become one of Australia’s most beloved tenors, having released nine consecutive #1 ARIA Classical Crossover Albums, earning accolades both nationally and internationally.Vincent’s last album, A Tribute to Mario Lanza, contains the ground breaking ‘virtual duet’ of “Because You’re Mine” with the Hollywood legend. The ‘duet’ made headlines and received the patronage of Mario Lanza’s daughter, Ellisa Lanza Bregman, who gave permission for the re-recoding of the ‘virtual duet’ and said, “I’m pleased to allow my father’s recoded voice to be joined on this historic recording by the exciting young tenor, Mark Vincent.”Like many other tenors, Mark discovered Mario Lanza through the film, The Great Caruso. Mark describes that moment, saying, “Throughout the whole movie I was in awe and struck by the incredible beauty of operatic singing and the urgency and intensity of his voice. It has been a life-long dream of mine to record an album as a tribute to an artist who was an inspiration to many modern singers including The Three Tenors, Andrea Bocelli, and even Elvis Presley. I am so proud to be the first Australian tenor to have recorded this album and tour this show across Australia.”Released by Sony Music Australia, Tribute debuted at #3 on the ARIA Album Charts, and at #1 on the ARIA Classical Crossover Charts. The album went on to be the highest selling ARIA Classical Crossover album of 2017.Fans can expect an intimate evening with Mark Vincent performing a rich repertoire of songs and arias made popular by the great Italian-American tenor and actor Mario Lanza including “Because You’re Mine”, “Be My Love”, The Loveliest Night of the Year” and “Nessun Dorma” to name a few.

Handel’s Voice

By

Colour City Chamber Orchestra presents Handel’s Voice
Colour City Chamber Orchestra presents internationally acclaimed Australian Tenor, Andrew Goodwin in a performance of arias of baroque composer George Fredric Handel. Italian opera was at the core of Handel’s compositional output for over 35 years, at a time when solo arias constituted one of the most important elements in Baroque opera. Andrew Goodwin and CCCO will journey through a range of operas, oratorios and English Odes showcasing the beautiful and dramatic music of Handel.
Andrew Goodwin was born in Sydney, Australia, and studied singing at the St Petersburg State Conservatory. His career as an operatic tenor has seen him embrace a wide range of roles at some of the world’s greatest opera houses, including La Scala Milan, Gran Theatre Liceu Barcelona, Teatro Real Madrid and the Sydney Opera House. Notably, he is the only westerner to perform the role of Lensky at the Bolshoi Theatre.

By A Thread

By

One Fell Swoop presents By A Thread
Long spools of white rope run through pulley sheaves and wrap around bodies, explicitly connecting the artists’ movements above and off the ground. Like the booms and sheets of a sailing ship the performers are hoisted and swung by one another to create striking tableaux and breath-taking dynamics. The actions of one acrobat affect and implicate the movements of others in a precise negotiation of cause and effect.
By a Thread offers rich visuals of inventive aerial acrobatics from some of Australia’s best emerging circus artists. With intense training in a breadth of contemporary circus disciplines, the performers have pooled their knowledge and skills, and then exploded the traditional boundaries of these disciplines to create a show where classic techniques are used in expansive ways.

Edward The Emu

By

Monkey Baa Theatre Company presents Edward The Emu
Edward is bored with his lot. Being the only emu at the zoo has left him feeling glum and under the impression that the grass is greener in everyone else’s enclosure. Maybe being a seal, or a lion, or a snake might be a better option in life for a lonely bird? Convinced that the other creatures are more popular, Edward breaks ranks and goes to find the fun.
Meanwhile the Keepers are in hot pursuit, hunting high and low to relocate their crowd-pleasing, much-loved feathered attraction. Edward stays one step ahead until he’s ready to head home; concluding that being an emu might be just right after all. Back at HIS pen, a very shocking but welcome surprise awaits… he’s been replaced by the rather wonderful Edwina the Emu!
Lonely no more, the pair are soon the expectant parents of 10 eggs. With the impending arrival of their large family, Edwina is driven to find the right job to support her brood. Whilst Edward assumes nesting duties, she throws her hat in the job-market ring and heads out into the world. Trying all sorts of roles on for size, from dancer to waiter, she discovers she’s not the right fit for any of the human jobs!
The award-winning Monkey Baa team brings to the stage the classic Australian tale of two emus searching for their identity.  The emus’ journey of hilarity and tenderness leads them to discover that the best thing you can be is …. you!
