Adelaide Cabaret Festival


Dear Cabaret Aficionado,

The crowds donned their finery for last Friday’s Festival opening. It was a night of glitz and glamour and a wonderful celebration of all things cabaret! Did you walk the red carpet? Check out the photos to see if our photographers snapped you in your tux or sequins.

The Variety Gala Performance raised the curtain on this year’s Festival. As always, it was a fantastic taster of the incredibly diverse acts on offer this year. Rachel Beck shone as Miss Saigon, European Cabaret superstar Sven Ratzke unleashed his inner diva, and Melanie Safka transported us all back to Woodstock in 1969.

My personal highlight was awarding the 2014 Cabaret Icon Award to the legendary Rhonda Burchmore. She was taken completely by surprise and was a gorgeous, gracious and totally deserving winner.

Watch our highlights video to catch all of the action from opening night.

With one week behind us, there’s still plenty of excitement in store for audiences. Don’t miss Tim Freedman’s intimate tribute to Harry Nilsson, New York Composer Scott Evan Davis’ brand new musical, Picture Perfect, the mischievous cabaret for kids, Still Awake Still!, David Campbell performing songs by Broadway composer John Bucchino, and the incomparable king of cabaret, Paul Capsis, in Little Bird. Plus our late night Backstage Club is the perfect place to kick on after an evening of cabaret. Come and join the party!

Artistic Director, Adelaide Cabaret Festival
