Under the baton of Vanessa Scammell, Australia’s own musical theatre royalty Caroline O’Connor will be joined by multi-talented vocalist Katie Noonan, and rising stars, Elise McCann and Ryan Gonzalez for an extraordinary tribute to one of the greatest musical talents in modern history.
With an unparalleled career spanning six decades, Barbra Streisand is a multi-award-winning performer, director and producer of stage and screen, and one of only a few elite artists to hold the rare EGOT (Emmy, Golden Globe, Oscar and Tony).
Acclaimed Australian songstress Katie Noonan, whose remarkable musicality has produced stunning reinterpretations of timeless classics, also paid tribute to Streisand and her living legacy.
Barbra Streisand is one of the greatest musical interpreters of all time. I believe her ability to bring a song to life is unparalleled. Her phrasing, her pitch, her tone, her dynamics, her sense of storytelling and her overall artistry is awe-inspiring. I am deeply honoured to join the magnificent Adelaide Symphony Orchestra to celebrate her extraordinary artistry and contribution to culture,” said Katie.
The evening’s musical program will be arranged by conductor, composer and avid film buff Nicholas Buc and directed by one of Australia’s most versatile choreographers and exciting new directors, Cameron Mitchell.
