Perth Festival opens in show-stopping style with satirist, pianist, provocateur and musical genius Tim Minchin live in Kings Park. Western Australia’s globally-renowned multi-talent is back home for a world premiere special performance of his brand-new album, Apart Together. Songs of love, fidelity, absence, entropy, aspiration, disappointment and death are all told in his inimitable style.
For this uniquely local international festival, each song has been reimagined by a different world-class orchestrator, with Artistic Director Iain Grandage among the Western Australians taking up the challenge. In the glorious surrounds of Kings Park, Tim is joined by his favourite WA musicians, including the West Australian Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jessica Gethin, for an evening of wonderful music.
