AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Songs for Nobodies

A Melbourne tram running along Swanston Street advertises this unusual one-woman show.
Bernadette Robinson plays five ordinary women and five iconic singers - Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Maria Callas. Each “nobody” recounts an intimate tale of how her life was transformed by an encounter with one of these icons.
The show has been performed in Melbourne's Fairfax Theatre and will be performed at the Sydney Opera House from February 3 - March 4. For more details see HERE!

And here is a taste!

Our signal is so slow way out here in the country between 2 mountains I cannot get the streaming to let me hear the clip. What a disappointment. Wish it was coming here to the states. I bet it is a fabulous performance. genie

The show sure sounds interesting, and when I watched the video? Wow - her voice just blew me away! What a talented woman!
