Broad range of events selling fast29 Aug
In just over three weeks since tickets went on sale for the 2014 Melbourne Festival program, a great variety of events ranging from contemporary circus music to theatre and circus, plus shows for children and families, are proving particularly popular.
Several shows are close to sold out with only a handful of tickets left for Pepper the Monkey and the Rainbow Circus - a classical music show for children aged one to five, and one of five events in a residency by the UK’s Aurora Orchestra - along with both performances by Berlin composer and pianist Nils Frahm, and shows from both film composer Clint Mansell and Borodin Quartet at Melbourne Recital Centre. Tickets are flying out the door for legendary Detroit techno producer and DJ, Jeff Mills with the MSO at Hamer Hall.
Other events and productions proving popular are the world premiere season of Complexity of Belonging from German writer and theatre director Falk Richter and Chunky Move’s Anouk Van Fijk; contemporary jazz god Pat Metheny Unity Group; the world premiere of Roslyn Oades’ new verbatim theatre piece at Malthouse Theatre, Hello, Goodbye & Happy Birthday; and contemporary music events at the Foxtel Festival Hub across the entire Festival season are proving as popular as ever.
Registrations are at full capacity for both performances of the new Festival event, Haydn Open House at Chadwick House, Eaglemont on Sunday 26 October.
Registrations are also at capacity for Art and Feminism as part of More Than Just A Pretty Picture: Art and Change at the Wheeler Centre on Wednesday 15 October. Places are still available for the second discussion, One in Two: Juvenile Injustice on Thursday 16 October.
The Festival runs from 10 – 26 October.
