La Boheme on Screen from Handa Opera

There’s something special on the way to the Manning Entertainment Centre’s big screen on Tuesday November 20 at 10am and 7pm. 

As part of our OnScreen film series, we present both filmed plays and events, and our next screening will be Opera Australia’s unforgettable production of La Bohème

From the world's most spectacular opera series, experience the love, laughter and loss of La Bohème at the magnificent Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour. Puccini’s beloved classic – the original bohemian love story – has long captivated audiences around the world.

His music swells with love, soars in ecstasy, crackles with jealousy and cries with heartache. With lavish sets and costumes transforming the harbour-top stage into a romantic Paris winter, Opera Australia's glittering production will be a delight.

Les Misèrables rehearsals humming along

Rehearsals, costume making and set construction for Taree Arts Council’s Les Misèrables are coming along exceedingly well with director Gayle Cameron at the helm, and all hands on deck for various aspects of the production. 

There’s much to be done before opening night on Friday November 2, but they’re a very organised bunch. 

Ticket sales are going very well and patrons are advised to get in now to book in order to grab the best seats. 

Matinees in particular are very popular, so scoop up your Sunday tickets now to avoid disappointment closer to the event.

In The Mood tomorrow – sold out

Tomorrow at 2pm we have In The Mood, which has now sold out. 

2018 sees the show’s fourth Australian tour combined with celebrating the tour’s 25th anniversary.

Show goers will be taken back in time with up-tempo Swing hits such as Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, In the Mood and Chattanooga Choo Choo. 

There is no other show of this era like it - full of outstanding singing, incredible dancing and colourful costumes. 

Sounds like it’s going to be great, but if you missed out, you can get in early for the next show from this same company: Nashville Live on Friday March 8. 

Nashville Live takes you through the history of country music from golden greats Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Dolly Parton, through to the contemporary platinum selling sounds of Shania Twain, Garth Brooks, Dixie Chicks and more.

This live show is a celebration of country music and the stories behind the genre’s biggest hits.
