August Sneak Peeks

This month delivers artistic ambition and innovation– offering works that provoke, inspire and challenge convention. It includes the Australian Ballet’s La Bayadère and the very special, world first project – three operas by Philip Glass – Akhnaten, Einstein on the beach and Satyagraha –to be performed in Adelaide by the State Opera SA with Orchestra and Adelaide Art Orchestra as three complete cycles over three weeks.

Queensland Symphony’s Ghosts in the Orchestra, is a daring work with individual choristers - the ghosts - scattered throughout the orchestra in a bold contemplation of freedom of speech.

Walking into the Bigness is one of the first shows to open this month, tallying the varied life experiences of Richard Frankland-from child abattoir worker, soldier and Royal Commission Officer investigating Aboriginal Deaths in Custody – he tells his story because he says 'When you’ve got art you’ve got voice, when you’ve got voice you’ve got freedom, and with freedom comes responsibility.’

The performing arts create shared, live and present artistic connections between performer and audience, creator and student -an elixir of understanding that can move, enlighten and ignite.

Take a look at the opening nights featured below and visit the Opening Nights Calendar on the AMPAG website for more.

We've also included a snapshot of the recently released annual AMPAG Private Giving Survey results which confirm the generous and valued support given to the performing arts by Australian philanthropist. Thank you all.

Kind regards,
Bethwyn Serow Executive Director
Australian Major Performing Arts Group
