REVIEW: Dame Edna Everage Narrates Peter and the Wolf

City Hall Concert Hall, Saturday March 31

Though the concert had a clear kids focus, that didn't stop a lot of adults without kids flocking to the City Hall to see Dame Edna Everage in her farewell global tour.
This is my review of the Dame's performance with the City Chamber Orchestra for Time-Out Magazine. To view, please click here.

P.S. Interestingly, I was seated behind David Tang, who confirmed that indeed Dame Edna is his godmother upon my inquiry :-) Mr. Tang also graciously introduced me to Lizzie Spender (daughter of British poet Sir Stephen Spender), the wife of Dame Edna, I mean Barry Humphries :-)
