The Secret Garden

The Secret Garden

Starring Anthony Warlow

Somewhere, someone buried the key to life...The key that opens the hidden door to…The Secret Garden. When it premiered on Broadway, The Secret Garden took New York by storm. Rave reviews, Tony Awards and international productions all followed. Now, for the first time in twenty-five years, this sensational musical returns to Australia. Based on the much-loved novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this heart-warming story comes to life on-stage with the same magical qualities, in this sophisticated take on the literary classic. Young, orphaned Mary Lennox arrives at her uncle’s home to find distant grieving relatives - and the mysterious tale of a secret garden. Together with new-found friends, Mary breathes life into the secret garden. She blossoms too, and through her adventures, tends to all the hearts around her. Australia’s leading man, Anthony Warlow, will once again create theatrical magic in the role of Archibald Craven. The sumptuous score contains a raft of wonderful songs, including 'A Bit of Earth', 'Show Me the Key' and the unforgettable 'Lily’s Eyes'. Book now - and discover the classic musical, The Secret Garden.

Scorpions and Whitesnake

A deadly duo not to be missed!

Get ready for the biggest hard rock tour of the year! German icons Scorpions return in 2020 with Whitesnake, the legendary rock ’n’ roll band founded and formed by former Deep Purple singer and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, David Coverdale. Rock out to full sets from two of the most celebrated rock icons in one night. Scorpions have sold more than 100 million records to date. However, their countless silver, gold and platinum awards are only one side of the Scorpions’ history. Their unabated desire to travel has seen them play thousands of concerts in all corners of the planet, from Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo, Moscow, Washington, Dubai, Paris to Berlin. Whitesnake is one of the most successful and enduring rock bands in the world. Formed in 1978 by former Deep Purple frontman David Coverdale, the band soon became one of Europe’s most successful live acts before Coverdale decamped to America and relaunched the band in the late 80s with the multi-platinum success of their album 1987. The album reached top ten on both sides of the Atlantic within a week of its release and went on to sell 8 million copies in the US alone, giving them a number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 with 'Here I Go Again'. Scorpions and Whitesnake are a deadly duo not to be missed!

Lucrezia Borgia in concert

Donizetti

A ruthless woman with a secret son. A jealous husband bent on vengeance. A young orphan, whose loyalty will cost him his life. It’s got poison and betrayals galore. But the best reason to see Lucrezia Borgia in concert is to bask in the skills of an extraordinary soprano. Impossible trills and stratospheric notes make this classic Donizetti an important conquest for the best coloratura sopranos. Like Joan Sutherland before her, superstar Jessica Pratt has made this music her home. Her agile soprano rings out on stages all over the world, including the famed boards of La Scala. This is your chance to hear Jessica Pratt perform the title role of Lucrezia Borgia (including the infamous final aria) in concert. Carlo Montanaro conducts a wonderful cast, including Giuseppe Gipali as Gennaro, Michael Honeyman as Duke Alfonso and Varduhi Abrahamyan as Orsini. You can hear the splendour of the Opera Australia Orchestra in Hamer Hall.
