4 must-see events at the Adelaide Festival 2017

February 17th, 2017 Comments off

The Adelaide Festival runs from 3-19 March. Fascinating opera, theatre, music, dance, film and visual arts awaits. This festival features some of the world’s best.

The Adelaide Festival is in its 32nd year. The 2017 line-up includes opera from England and drama from Germany. There’s also dance from Israel and a tribute to the late Judy Garland.

Grab a cheap car hire deal from Adelaide and make sure you see these top four performances at the 2017 Adelaide Festival.

Saul (pictured)

George Frideric Handel’s Saul is the headline act for 2017. Directed by Barrie Kosky, this opera masterpiece treats you to dramatic and heart-breaking music. It tells the story of a Lear-like mad king and his family’s struggles. Critics across the world have praised the show after a performance at the Glyndebourne Festival two years ago. Now it comes exclusively to Adelaide for Australian opera lovers.

Portraits in Motion

Have you ever wanted to see the world through an artist’s eyes? “Intrepid traveller” Volker Gerling has walked more than 3,500km throughout Germany. Over the years he has documented the people he met and their stories. He has created flipbook portraits, which he presents to his audience. He explains the story behind each picture and points out the fragile moments that he so beautifully captures.

Rufus Wainwright: Rufus does Judy

Canadian singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright is a delightful performer. He comes to the Adelaide Festival in 2017 to perform two of the works that are closest to his heart. He puts on a show with a concert version of Prima Donna, which was his first undertaking in the world of opera. In this one-night show he also teams with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra to re-create Judy Garland’s 1961 Carnegie Hall concert in a touching tribute.

Contemporary Dance

L-E-V will perform two fantastic works at this year’s festival. Killer Pig is a oroud mix of folkdance and classical gestures. While organisers liken it to “a tribal ceremony from an alien culture” and it’s bound to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire performance. Then there’s OCB Love, which explores lovers who always seem out of touch with each in today’s modern world. It’s contemporary dance with more edge to it than more.
