There is a saying in our business that “the show must go on” and there have been many times over the years that we have seen the passion and hard work of artists and crews put a show on stage that only hours earlier seemed impossible. We are therefore greatly disappointed to share the news that due to the challenges and concerns created by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming season of Lorelei.
Our greatest priority will always be the health and wellbeing of our audiences, artists, staff and their families and taking advice from the government’s directive to limit all non-essential mass gatherings to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the entire Brisbane season from 27 March to 4 April at Conservatorium Theatre, South Bank will no longer take place.
You’re on a boat sailing down Germany’s Rhine River towards a particularly tricky bend. There’s no turning back as jagged rocks and merciless cliffs come into view… and yet, above the sound of torrid water and scrambling men, a song so pure calls through the fog.
Legend has it that three sirens – the Lorelei – sit atop the cliffs enchanting sailors with their deadly songs. The Lorelei take no prisoners as the sailors lose focus… and ultimately their lives on the rocks below.
But you’ve caught the Lorelei on an odd day. Because today they’re wondering if they’re sick of singing sailors to their deaths. Do they all really deserve to die? Can the Lorelei help being so irresistible?
Ali McGregor, Dimity Shepherd and Antoinette Halloran await you for a seductive encounter where myth meets modern woman.
