The Kenneth Jack View

from June 17, 2017 @ 9:00 AM until August 27, 2017 @ 4:00 PM
Gippsland Art Gallery - Sale

Kenneth Jack (1924—2006) captured the quintessential Australia through his paintings, drawings and prints.

Jack was renowned for intricate images of Australian cities, outback towns and vast panoramic views.  Yet another side to Jack is reflected in the works that he kept in his private collection, which reveal the intellectual and artistic challenges that he faced.

Assembled by the artist’s son David, The Kenneth Jack View presents a range of works from the artist’s own collection, many of which are previously unseen, together with key works from the Gippsland Art Gallery’s collection.

Forge Theatre and Arts Hub

The night is full of light - the twinkle of a carpet of stars, shards of moonlight piercing the forest canopy, romance kindled by the embers of a fire - but outshining them all, a song from the heart.

Following on from her acclaimed Melbourne Chamber Orchestra directing debut in 2015 with The Gypsy Palace, Rebecca Chan returns with 'Songs of the Night', a sonorous and lush nocturnal vision, including Wagner's passionate Prelude from Tristan und Isolde and Schroenberg's twilt confession for strings, Verklarte nacht.

Tenor Andrew Goodwin's career has hit the stratosphere, singing major roles at opera houses across Europe to enormous acclaim.  He sings haunting night-themed lieder reimagined in sumptuous new string orchestra arrangements, including Schoenberg's Waldesnacht and Schubert's Der Erlkonig.

Get along to this Concert for a memorable afternoon of fine music.

After a sold-out run of ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison to metropolitan centres in 2016, revered singer-songwriter Damien Leith is gearing up to revisit the music of his idol in 2017 for a special The Hall of Fame Tour.

Taking the show to regional Australia, the tour is an opportunity for Damien to perform in towns he hasn’t played in years, or if at all. When the ROY show toured the capital cities earlier in the year, it was always his plan to take it on the road to country Australia.

Damien has always had a strong affinity with Roy’s music. He recorded and worked with the late Barbara Orbison and continues to write with legendary musicians in Nashville who worked with Roy throughout his career. In fact, when Damien released his album Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison it stayed in the ARIA Top 20 chart for 22 weeks and it was nominated for not only an ARIA award, but also sold multi-platinum.

Mystery of a Hansom Cab - Lux Radio Theatre

In true 1940’s radio theatre style Lux Radio Theatre presents ‘Mystery of a Hansom Cab’.  Let your imagination run wild as a group of top Melbourne theatre and screen actors recreate the pre-television days with the rediscovered Australian whodunnit MYSTERY OF A HANSOM CAB, the successful book that preceded Sherlock Holmes.

Set in the 1880s in a mansion in the fashionable suburb of St Kilda, at the exclusive Melbourne Club and the criminal haunt of Little Bourke Street, this intriguing story centres around a murder in a hansom cab.

James Wright, Paul David Goddard, Simon Russell (straight out of a leading role in 'We Will Rock You') and Lucy Gransbury (who featured in the recent 'Godspell' at the Sydney Opera House), will delight audiences in ‘Mystery of a Hansom Cab’, not only with its unexpected plot twists, but with its colourful references to late nineteenth century Victoria.

A feature of the performance is the sound effects created live and the vintage soap commercials.
