ABOUT 

Enoch Arden brings together live performance, breathtaking composition and experimental film in a world first of its kind.

 

Performed from the Alex Theatre in Melbourne and the Brisbane Music Festival Studio in Brisbane, this cross border/cross disciplinary show offers a unique and experimental take on the Strauss/Tennyson classic. The performance is weaved together with an original Victorian Theatre Company film made by Jak Scanlon - connecting German Romanticism and British poetry with an Australian outback landscape

Donating to a production allows the artist to continue creating and making more productions like the one you just watched!
