Dahlesque – Adelaide Cabaret Festival
June 17, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - June 18, 2017 @ 10:00 pm UTC+9.5
Oriel Entertainment Group are currently creating the World Premiere Concert DAHLESQUE starring Elise McCann presented at The Adelaide Cabaret Festival June 17 & 18.
Explore the fantastical imagination and sardonic and sadistic world of one of the world’s best-selling authors, the irrepressible Roald Dahl, in this gloriumptiously irreverent and magical concert.
Join Elise McCann (2016 Helpmann Award winner for her role as Miss Honey in Matilda the Musical) and an astonishingly playful twelve-piece orchestra, as they bring to life music from adaptations of Dahl’s favourite stories. Featuring music from Tim Minchin’s mega-hit Matilda, the classic Gene Wilder movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Pasek & Paul’s James and the Giant Peach, Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and more.
Written by Elise McCann and Richard Carroll, Musical Arrangements by Stephen Amos and Musically Directed by Michael Tyack – DAHLESQUE is an evening of anarchic, outrageous, grotesque, moving, heart pounding, playful, rude and imaginative storytelling!
