We open the Festival in show-stopping style with satirist, pianist, provocateur and musical genius Tim Minchin live in Kings Park.
West Australia’s globally-renowned multi-talent is back home for a world premiere special performance of his brand-new, critically acclaimed album, Apart Together. This hugely entertaining collection of songs reflects upon love, fidelity, absence, entropy, aspiration, disappointment, and death, all told in Tim Minchin’s inimitable style.
For this uniquely local international festival, each song has been reimagined by a different world-class orchestrator, with Artistic Director Iain Grandage among the West Australians taking up the challenge. In the glorious surrounds of Kings Park, Tim is joined by his favourite WA musicians, including West Australian Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jessica Gethin, for an evening of wonderful music to welcome in the Festival.
Doors open at 5.30 pm with the show starts at 7:00 pm. Guests are welcome to BYO chairs or picnic blankets and their own food and soft drinks (no alcohol). For more FAQs on transport etc. can be here.
