Mahler Das Lied von der Erde concert and Barry Humphries’ Weimar Cabaret will be showcased in one of the world's most renowned festivals.

During the Edinburgh International Festival, the ACO presents a superb program with Wagner's Siegfried Idyll and Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde featuring two international opera stars, tenor Stuart Skelton and mezzo-soprano Alice Coote.

Following this inspiring concert, the ACO presents Barry Humphries’ Weimar Cabaret. Humphries curates, presents and performs the music of Berlin's Weimar Republic (1920s-1930s) including jazz, cabaret, tango and Broadway-musical style pieces. The hedonistic partying and social revolution of this era is re-awakened in this full-throttle concert featuring transgressive cabaret sensation Meow Meow.

This project has been assisted by the Australian government through the Ministry for the Arts’ Catalyst—Australian Arts and Culture Fund.
