Welcome to the mayhem of Louis Nowra’s Così. A darkly funny and deeply moving ensemble piece, Così has occupied a special place in the hearts of Australians since Toni Collette, Ben Mendelsohn and Barry Otto starred in the acclaimed 1996 film. With its motley crew of lovable characters, Così offers a poignant reminder of the transformative power of music and performance, and how art can make us soar – even if just for a moment.

Each of them is keeping a secret and as confidences are shared, ever-optimistic Winnie concocts a hare-brained scheme to help her friends unleash their creative talent on the world.

If Rossini made a show reel of his best work, it would sound like Il Viaggio a Reims ( The Journey to Reims). The prolific composer was unabashedly showing off when he wrote this incredible work, destined to dazzle the aristocracy at the crowning of Charles X and then disappear forever. The simple plot is a marvellous excuse for a string of fantastic arias and impressive ensemble pieces.
