Guiding you on this magical journey is the conductor extraordinaire, Christoph Altstaedt, and the enchanting Australian American Soprano, Rachelle Durkin.

This performance brings a rare and captivating program of musical satire and theatre. At the heart of this exceptional performance is HK Gruber’s Frankenstein!! in its chamber version, inspired by Mary Shelley’s iconic tale.

As the evening progresses, you will be carried away by the mysterious allure of Ligeti’s Mysteries of the Macabre. The piece is characterised by its playful, humoristic, eccentric, and sometimes chaotic nature.

Australia has its own touch of the weird and wacky to offer with a new commission from Dr Nicholas Vines: A Mega Masquerade. This fresh take on Carnival of the Animals is a satirical commentary on Australian issues of evolution and extinction featuring the unsung distant runner-up for our national emblem: the Demon Duck of Doom.
