Variety Gala Performance

March 11th, 2013

The 2013 Variety Gala performance will toast the Adelaide Festival Centre’s 40th anniversary and the opening of the 2013 Adelaide Cabaret Festival with some of the finest cabaret performers around the world.

Due to popular demand the Gala will run over two exclusive nights in spectacular style.

The Gala is firmly secured as a feature on the Adelaide entertainment calendar and a staple in the diet of every Cabaret Festival fan – the performance is the appetizer to the grand buffet of performances that are on offer at the 2013 Adelaide Cabaret Festival. The performance will feature highlights from international and local cabaret stars backed by the Adelaide Art Orchestra in a 90 minute showcase of outstanding talent.

The 2013 Adelaide Cabaret Festival program is set to sizzle with four artists announced ahead of the official program launch on 6 April. Tony Award Winning performer, Idina Menzel will lead the charge. The star of Broadway’s Wicked and the original stage production of Rent will headline the closing weekend of the 2013 Adelaide Cabaret Festival on 22 June, Festival Theatre.

Menzel will enchant audiences with the 55 piece Adelaide Art Orchestra and demonstrate why she is one of the great vocal performers of our time, with a diverse repertoire of classic pop and musical theatre favourites including hits from Wicked and Rent. Garnering huge critical acclaim, she has a diverse career on the stage, in film, television and in music. A favourite in the smash hit television series Glee, she is exactly the type of star Cabaret Festival audiences have grown to love and expect.
