Spring is upon us once again, Melbourne!

As the month of September starts, we welcome more pleasing weather and, typical of Melbourne, a ton of things to see and do!

September is another great month for theatre and music in Melbourne.  The city has some exciting events just for you.

 

Anthony Callea and the MSO at Hamer Hall

  • Friday 8th September
  • 8pm
  • Hamer Hall, Arts Centre

Join singer Anthony Callea and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (MSO) for a night of music and melody on Friday 8th September.

Anthony first gained recognition when he joined the 2004 season of Australian Idol. He made it to the Top 30 but failed to make the cut after the viewers voted. However, he was chosen as a wildcard contestant and after a stellar performance, he made it to the Top 12.

Anthony made it all the way to the finals and finished runner up, behind eventual winner Casey Donovan.

As soon as the competition ended, he was awarded a record deal, while his version of Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion’s The Prayer skyrocketed to the top of the charts.  

Since 2004, Anthony has made a name for himself as one of the country’s top vocalists.  And he continues to share his vocal talents with the country.

Anthony Callea and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra

His Hamer Hall performance coincides with the release of his new album, Aria Number 1 Hits in Symphony which he recorded with the MSO.

Leading this very special performance is one of Australia’s top musical directors, John Foreman.  

Prepare for a night of musical entrancement on Friday 8th September at Hamer Hall. Tickets for this special night are available here.

  • Arts Centre, St Kilda Road

What happens when you mix the ballet and one of the most beloved children’s stories? You get The Australian Ballet’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

We’re all familiar with the story of Lewis Carroll’s Alice, how she fell down the rabbit hole, and her wild adventures in Wonderland. If you want to see a different take on this classic story, then you can’t miss this magical performance.

Along with Alice, watch the kooky Mad Hatter, the vanishing Caterpillar, the despotic Queen of Hearts and your other favourite quirky characters come to life in this captivating ballet show.

See the Australian Ballet prance and leap in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland from 12th to 30th September at the Arts Centre (St Kilda Road). And with the spring school holidays starting on the 23rd, this show is a perfect holiday activity with the kids and family!
