The world’s greatest directors breathe new life into beloved classics. Few do so like Robert Lepage.
In Adelaide Festival’s 2024 centrepiece opera, the internationally acclaimed auteur brings his brilliant imagination and a lush aesthetic to Igor Stravinsky’s The Nightingale and Other Fables. Enchanting acrobatic shadow puppets, Taiwanese hand puppets and Vietnamese water puppetry form a stunning visual backdrop for Stravinsky’s uplifting music, brought to life by a superb cast of international singers, the State Opera South Australia Chorus and Adelaide Symphony Orchestra.
The Nightingale and Other Fables is a magical work that will delight audiences of all ages.
