js bach's coffee cantata
Our next production is an intoxicating staging of J S Bach’s ‘Coffee Cantata’ in an intimate salon setting.
It shows a rare, cheeky side of Bach. The theme the power of coffee (a fad sweeping Leipzig in 1734) feels suprisingly modern and we are giving it a contemporary take, plus a soupçon of Peer Gynt .
Performances will take place in Sydney and on our tour of rural NSW when Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
Henrik Ibsen's play accompanied by the music of Edvard Grieg is a rarely performed masterpiece. It is our major production for after Covid 19. It features the adventures of Norwegian braggart and poet Peer Gynt, and a fantasy world of trolls, mythical creatures and fake news.
We are privileged to have the assistance of renowned Ibsen translator May-Brit Akerholt. We have also secured support from Sydney City Council.

Our past success proves our productions are accessible and enjoyable for modern audiences.
Our past productions have developed the skills of new performers and behind-the-scenes helpers using the knowledge and experience of mentors. The Beggar’s Opera saw talented singers with little acting experience become assured, convincing on-stage characters, such as the endearing Polly and dastardly MacHeath.
