WAAPA performances in October

WAAPA performances in October

Tuesday, 06 October 2009


The WA Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) is hosting a number of exciting performances throughout October.

Dialogues of the Carmelites – Opera

Based on historical events that befell the Carmelite monastery in Compiègne in 1794, Dialogues of the Carmelites is the compelling tale of a group of nuns struggling to survive persecution by the leaders of the French Revolution.

WAAPA’s production of Dialogues of the Carmelites features a 62-piece orchestra and 51 classical voice and opera students. Highly-respected Sydney director Kate Gaul joins conductor David Wickham in bringing this luminously beautiful score to the stage.

When: 7.30pm on Saturday, 10 and Monday, 12 to Saturday, 17 October
Where: The Geoff Gibbs Theatre at WAAPA
Cost: $35 or $29 for Concession and Friends of the Academy

Open Cut – Theatre

Fortunes are flowing from the gaping holes of the Pilbara, but so are misfortunes. Riches must be paid for - with relationships, values and even lives. And as long as people are willing to pay, the wheels keep turning. This thought-provoking new play by up and coming playwright Hilary Bell was commissioned by WAAPA for its 2009 season.

When: 7.30pm on Friday, 9 to Thursday, 15 October
Where: The Roundhouse Theatre at WAAPA
Cost: $22 or $17 for Concession and Friends of the Academy

The Mace Francis Orchestra – Chinese Whispers IV

WAAPA’s Ensemble-in-Residence, the Mace Francis Orchestra will premiere Chinese Whispers IV - a collaborative composition project that involves multiple composers creating a new body of work.

When: 7.30pm on Thursday, 15 October
Where: The Music Auditorium at WAAPA
Cost: $20 or $15 for Concession and Friends of the Academy

Tickets can be purchased online or at the WAAPA Box Office by phoning 9370 6636.
