Two years in the creating and expansion process to full orchestration. Our Cabaret debut in Claire’s Kitchen at Le Salon 1st March 2019 to a full house and standing ovation. Only to have public demand ask us to write a full Broadway show. Hence this Official Australian Première.
Sempre Libera – What happens when Opera meets feminism and equality? Sempre Libera is a fascinating one woman, opera style cabaret theatrical production which explores the physical and psychological destruction and reconstruction of female characters in Opera through a celebration of Song, Poetry and Dialogue. Women have been ritually sacrificed on the altar of Opera across history, now it is time to hear Her Story. Genevieve weaves the catharsis of a journey where she is our heroine and ultimately her Liberation.
