World-class opera & critically acclaimed cabaret at The Drum
This Autumn, live events return to the world-class Drum Theatre! The May/June program is filled with an exciting range of live music, cabaret and dance productions - including two highly anticipated events, Opera Australia's 25th Anniversary Tour of Carmen and Jude Perl's award-winning cabaret I Have a Face!

Opera Australia's 25th Anniversary Tour of Carmen

Opera Australia is proudly presenting a 25th Anniversary Tour of Bizet's famous opera Carmen this Autumn. Tickets are now on sale for the performances at the Drum Theatre - two shows only May 14 and May 15, 7.30 pm.

This lavish new production will feature Australia's finest opera singers, accompanied by a chamber orchestra and a local children's chorus.

Regarded as the world's most popular opera, Bizet's Carmen highlights the colour and vibrancy of postcard Spain, with vintage-inspired costumes that evoke an era of bikers and shady police in a post-war setting of teen angst and rebellion.

Caught between her desire for love and a longing for freedom, Carmen faces an impossible choice: Don Josť or the dashing bullfighter Escamillo. She's enigmatic and elusive: a femme fatale you can't forget.

Don't miss this special opportunity to hear the famous Habanera and the Toreador Song - just as Bizet meant them - loud and live!

Tickets are on sale through drum.greaterdandenong.vic.gov.au or call the box office team on 8571 1666. Early bookings are advised.

For more information on the event and to plan your visit, please see drum.greaterdandenong.vic.gov.au.

Note: Sung in French with English surtitles.

I Have a Face - Jude Perl

Jude Perl received rave reviews at this year's Melbourne Internation Comedy Festival and she is coming back to The Drum Theatre with award-winning cabaret I Have a Face on Friday 11 June at 8pm with special local guest, Margot Tanjutco. Tickets are now on sale for this one night only event!

This laugh-out-loud hilarious and honest cabaret will bring the focus on ourselves, our labels and how we cope with these, or not!

Sometimes labels are super useful, particularly when you're washing your fave jumper. But Jude's hilarious cabaret performance reminds us when labels are totally useless. She'll talk about some tough stuff, make you laugh and make you feel truly human.

I Have A Face won Best Cabaret at the Melbourne Fringe 2018, as well as her 4th Green Room Award. Jude has performed packed shows all over the world, including the Hotel Cafe in LA, Ronnie Scotts in London, and all over Australia. She has created a name for herself by writing and performing hilarious, yet brutally honest, stream-of-consciousness style lyrics, set to undeniably catchy and well-crafted songs.

Tickets are on sale through drum.greaterdandenong.vic.gov.au or call the box office team on 8571 1666. Early bookings are advised.

For more information on the event and to plan your visit, please see drum.greaterdandenong.vic.gov.au.
