Looking for a ‘loverly’ night out? Or fancy a rumble with the Jets and Sharks? From Lerner and Loewe’s charming My Fair Lady to Bernstein’s brilliant West Side Story, conductor Geoffrey Castles and two of musical theatre’s most exciting young stars will join the Canberra Symphony Orchestra to bring the glitz and glamour of Broadway and the West End to this year’s Shell Prom. Enjoy breathtaking numbers from all your favourite shows, including Phantom of the Opera, Carousel, Wicked, Miss Saigon and Sweeney Todd.
Join the Wicked Witch of the West, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Eliza Doolittle, Tony, Maria and many more in a night of magic, laughter and love in stunning music from the greatest triumphs of musical theatre.
The Saturday Series is a change of pace from the mid-week rhythm. This inspired collection of one-off concerts offers a range of experiences, from a picnic in the gardens of Government House and a grand night at the opera, to an afternoon of chamber classics.
