Presented by Sydney Opera House
Led by the divine Marcia Hines alongside a dazzling array of acrobats, aerialists and vocalists, prepare for a euphoric dose of disco fever and a touch of glitter - not to mention an epic disco soundtrack that will have you boogying all the way to wonderland in your seat.
Continuing the amalgam of variety and concert, Velvet Rewired offers sheer entertainment in an ode to discotheque and Studio 54 - the infamous club synonymous with cultural acceptance, wild parties and endless good times. Much like Studio 54, Velvet Rewired is blind to colour, creed, class, gender, size and sexuality, welcoming audiences to a nightclub, a state of mind, and ultimately, a fantasy.
Rewired follows the original Velvet, born in the sequins and dust of the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Honouring the likes of Diana Ross, The Bee Gees, Earth Wind & Fire and The Weather Girls in an explosion of funk emulating the hedonistic clubs of the 1970s, Velvet Rewired takes us about as close to New York's Studio 54 as we're likely to get.
The home of Opera Australia and the Australian Ballet, the Joan Sutherland Theatre is the second largest indoor venue in the Opera House with a seated capacity for up to 1507. It features an extensive fly system and flexible staging and is suitable for all genres. Up to 70 musicians can be accommodated in the orchestra pit.
