- What’s on
Presented by West Australian Opera
What comes after happily ever after?
A Baker and his Wife, Cinderella, Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, and the Witch all wish for something but what will be the consequences if their wishes are granted?
Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony-Awarding winning work Into the Woods is a musical spectacle for all to enjoy as we find ourselves at the intersection of beloved fairy tales and darkly entertaining comedy. With outstanding reviews (The Times London called these performances “the genius of Sondheim in an irresistible production”) WAO brings the team at Northern Ireland Opera to Perth for the first time.
Witness dazzling staging and costumes as this season sees the finest ensemble cast of talent from around the country joining forces with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra to enter a musical masterpiece. A night that will transport you to the woods of enchantment and entanglement, of wishes and wonder as fairytale's most well-known characters reveal their most human selves.
