For over 50 years, the thrilling exploits of the world’s greatest spy have been accompanied by the world’s finest theme songs: Goldfinger, Live and Let Die, From Russia With Love, Diamonds Are Forever, Skyfall, You Only Live Twice, Thunderball, and so many more.
Now celebrate these timeless hits with The Music of James Bond in full live symphonic sound. Conducted by Mr 007 himself – Guy Noble – and sung with soulful power by Australia’s finest songstress, the multi-award winning Kate Ceberano, and musical theatre extraordinaire, Michael Falzon.
“The remarkable music of James Bond has spanned decades and now the next generation can enjoy the sweeping themes and luscious pop classics that accompany each film.” Says Michael
Falzon “A couple of years ago, Kate and I had the honour of bringing that music to Australian audiences with a full live orchestra. I’m so lucky to be sharing the stage again with the inimitable Ms. Ceberano and this time for Sydney audiences. Together we get to go down memory lane and I get to share the stage with one of the truly great voices of a generation. I’m chuffed.”
Kate Ceberano is one of Australia’s most loved performers. Her talent and popularity know no bounds. Her career spans three decades and various roles and incantations – from the lead singer of I’m Talking to an award-winning solo artist and performer, Artistic Director of the Adelaide Festival, author, actress and dancer. Kate has won multiple ARIA awards over her career and in 2014 became the first Australian woman to be inducted into the Australian Songwriters Association (ASA) Hall of Fame. Joining such luminaries as Don Walker, The Easybeats, LRB and The Angels. She was awarded an Order of Australia in 2016 for her charitable work and services.
Michael Falzon is one of our most talented entertainers. He has appeared on stages across Australia and the world in productions such as We Will Rock You, The War Of The Worlds, Chess, Hedwig and The Angry Inch and more. His music performances include Painted From Memory - the Music of Bacharach & Costello, with Luke Kennedy and Bobby Fox, and The Music of Queen - A Rock and Symphonic Spectacular with Sydney Symphony Orchestra (selling out concerts at Sydney Opera House and Hamer Hall). Falzon was also a featured artist in the Queensland Ballet and English National Ballet production of Strictly Gershwin.
Grab a martini and prepare to be shaken, and yes, possibly stirred, when the hit songs of cinema’s most famous secret agent – as made famous by stars like Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, Adele, Tina Turner, and Nancy Sinatra – are brought to exhilarating life onstage in The Music of James Bond.
