The Perth Theatre Company is set to release their latest instalment, ‘The Song Was Wrong’ at the Studio Underground (the ‘black box’ type studio below ground at the Heath Ledger Theatre) from Thursday 4th of June, 2015.
Written and directed by Perth Theatre Company’s Artistic Director, Melissa Cantwell. the show entails an epic love story about a piano player who falls deeply in love with a French woman during the occupation of Vietnam.
A tale of hope, redemtion and beautiful memories, the characters explore the boundaries of their passionate love affair along with the decisions made as their lives become forever entwined.
Teaming with international fashion designer, Aurelio Costarella – who has designed twelve incredible costumes for the show – and who will be backstage for the opening production, The Song Was Wrong will not only seduce the hardest of hearts but it will take you on a visual feast as well…
Melissa Cantwell said, “The Song was Wrong was inspired by a story I was told many years ago in a piano bar in Saigon. It was the story of a pianist who fell deeply in love with a French woman during the occupation of Vietnam. It’s creatively energising to be writing and directing a new piece, and incredibly inspiring to be working with such a fine ensemble of artists on a deeply human story of love and loss.”
Starring WAAPA graduates Felix Joseps and Astrid Grant (direct from working in France with world-renownd artist Ariane Mnouchkine of Le Théâtre du Soleil) as well as one of Perth’s most exciting emerging dancer/performer, Jacinta Larcombe, plus George Shetsov, Sarah Nelson and Thomas Papathanassiou, The Song Was Wrong will hit centre stage from Thursday 4th of June through until Saturday 20th of June.
