18–19 Aug WASO Classics Series: Asher Fisch Conducts Schubert's The Great Music|Concerts

19 Aug to 3 Sep Black Swan State Theatre Company: Switzerland Theatre|Dance|Film

When using words for weapons, how far do you go before it cuts too deep? The late Patricia Highsmith penned some of the most exhilarating suspense novels of all time, some becoming major cinematic adaptations including; The Price of Salt recently released as the film Carol, The Talented Mr Ripley and Strangers on a Train. Now the acerbic author herself is centre stage in this edge-of-your-seat thriller by acclaimed Australian playwright Joanna Murray-Smith (Honour, The Female of The Species, Ninety and Day One, A Hotel, Evening). The subject – writer Patricia Highsmith, lives a reclusive life in the Swiss Alps surrounded by her collection of books and antique weapons. The unlikeable genius facing the end of her life has withdrawn completely from the world, finding solace in her seclusion, her cats and cigarettes. Until one day a young man, Edward Ridgeway, intrudes into her place of refuge. He’s yet another irritating delegate from her publisher demanding a contract for one final instalment. Specifically another psychological thriller featuring her beloved muse and most infamous literary creation, Tom Ripley.

25–26 Aug WASO Masters Series: Asher Fisch Conducts Mahler 6 Music|Concerts

Conceived on a gigantic scale, Mahler’s Sixth is a symphony of extreme expressive intensity, demanding enormous interpretive commitment from both conductor and orchestra. Its legendary hammer blows are moments of raw brutality: theatrically exhilarating but emotionally devastating. Sonically spectacular and vividly imaginative, this is one of Mahler’s most awe-inspiring creations.
