And World War II also puts in an appearance at the Queensland Theatre Company, with its world premiere of Brisbane which draws on true stories from Brisbane in the middle of wartime.
But there's lightness as well, particularly with The Australian Ballet welcoming Stella Abrera, soloist with the American Ballet Theatre, who will perform the role of Giselle for two Sydney nights.
We hope you enjoy the rich offerings of our major companies this month.
