Internationally renowned baritone José Carbó is teaming up with the amazingly talented Slava and Leonard Grigoriyan in presenting My Latin Heart at the 2013 Adelaide Cabaret Festival. A celebration of the vibrancy and passion existing within Latin culture, the show is set to be a highlight of the festival's programme. Carbó takes some time to answer some questions about the show!
Another act set to appear at this year's Adelaide Cabaret Festival is Sydney's Baby Et Lulu. A musical partnership between talented and respected songstresses Abby Dobson and Lara Goodridge, Baby Et Lulu is going to take the audiences on a French journey, covering songs by the great French songwriters of the 20th century. Goodridge tells me about the show, working with Dobson and why it's French in particular that turns her on so...
One of the highlights on this year's Adelaide Cabaret Festival would have to be the show that Martha Wainwright is bringing through. Her new album Come Home To Mama shows the performer divulging more personal emotions and stories than we've perhaps seen from her before and it's these stories she'll be bringing to life in Adelaide (and further across the country) in June. Wainwright talks to me about the making of the album, her mother's death and the impact that had on proceedings - turning pain into music.
The Adelaide Cabaret Festival launched its 2013 program over the weekend, with the festival's Artistic Director Kate Cebrano taking a packed out Festival Theatre through the line-up, act by act. This year will see some iconic names of music and theatre stop by the festival, including Idina Menzel, Kristin Chenoweth, Cassandra Wilson and Molly Ringwald.
Celebrating 16 years of performing, the comedy trio Tripod played to a full Banquet Room in the Festival Theater as part of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival. Our photographer John Goodridge brings you some photos of the night.
After a huge opening weekend, the 2012 Adelaide Cabaret Festival has easily reached it's bo office target of 91%. The Queen's Birthday weekend saw many quality shows take place at the Festival Centre, many of which were sold out before the festival's opening night.
Lea Salonga is many things. She’s a wife, mother, musical theatre queen and Disney Princess. Winner of a Tony, Olivier and Disney Legend award (amongst others), Salonga is in Adelaide for a special run of shows which showcased songs from her illustrious career, and I was incredibly grateful I’d managed to score some tickets to her final show.
The opening night of the Adelaide Cabaret Festival brought so much glitz and glamour to the Adelaide Festival Centre; it was hard to pick the celebrities and performers from the rest of us schmoozing about in our finest. Following a walk down the red carpet and more than a few pre-show wines at the bar during happy hour, I and many others gathered in the Space Theatre for the first show of our time at the festival.
The 2012 Adelaide Cabaret Festival kicks off tonight with a spectacular smorgasbord of shows! The Festival Theatre stage will tonight host the sold out Variety Gala Performance, featuring more than 70 artists; a fitting way to mark Kate Cebrano's new role as the festival's Artistic Director.
If you’re in the market for some beguiling orchestrated pop, folk and somewhat extravagant and psychedelic trickery, then well travelled Melbourne girl Nadeah is your fix.
Australian born singer/songwriter Nadeah Miranda was the centrepiece of UK cult rockers, the LoveGods. Due to her mesmerising stage presence she was later scouted by the French super group Nouvelle Vague.
