Max Riebl - Hard to Handel II

  • Chapel off Chapel 12 Little Chapel Street Prahran, VIC, 3181 Australia (map)

A performance combining virtuosic hits by the greatest composer of the baroque era with songs from the golden era of pop.

Arias of betrayal, murderous rage and lust are juxtaposed with the ballads of Adele, Dusty Springfield and Elvis, that deal with love and despair. The show reframes baroque drama in modern existential emotion and unshackling virtuosic music with pop's carefree energy.

Max Riebl, an internationally recognised countertenor, reimagines powerful dramatic scenes in a modern context.

Part of The Melbourne Cabaret Festival 2018.
