'I like my men like I like my whiskey...on the rocks' – Lorelei

Ancient myth meets modern woman in an allegory of resilience and reclaiming one’s destiny.

Lorelei is a take-no-prisoners, smash-them-on-the-rocks wild woman; a romantic, compassionate, trusting woman; a sensible, rational woman. A present-day enchantress, her past is heartbreak and her future promises haunting self- discovery.

This siren song finds strength in numbers with a trio of talent so alluring it’s impossible to resist. Ali McGregor, Dimity Shepherd and Antoinette Halloran await you at the rock for an intoxicating encounter with love and death: part cabaret, part opera, all seduction.

Their hypnotic music is to die for.

Composers Julian Langdon, Casey Bennetto and Gillian Cosgriff
Librettists Casey Bennetto and Gillian Cosgriff
