To Barbra, With Love – An 80th Birthday Celebration

To Barbra, With Love, the highly successful celebration of the inimitable Barbra Streisand, will be remounted in Canberra with Canberra Symphony Orchestra this October. Premiered with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at Hamer Hall earlier this year, the concert was acclaimed by audiences and critics alike. Two of Australia’s hottest musical theatre talents - Elise McCann (Matilda The Musical, Merrily We Roll Along) and Ryan Gonzalez (they/them) (Moulin Rouge! The Musical, Jersey Boys) – join Australia’s own musical theatre royalty Caroline O’Connor for these not-to-be-missed concerts, with genre-hopping vocalist Katie Noonan. Under the baton of Vanessa Scammell, the symphony orchestras will deliver a program of Streisand’s most memorable songs, arranged by conductor and composer Nicholas Buc and directed by one of Australia’s most versatile choreographers and exciting new directors, Cameron Mitchell.   Celebrating her 80th birthday this year, Streisand is one of the best-selling female artists of all time, with an unparalleled career spanning six decades. Streisand’s record-breaking 52 gold and 31 platinum albums feature some of the world’s most loved songs from The Way We Were and Evergreen to Send in the Clowns, You Don’t Bring Me Flowers and Guilty. Streisand is a multi-award-winning performer, director and producer of stage and screen, and one of only a few elite artists to hold the rare EGOT (Emmy, Golden Globe, Oscar and Tony). She has worked with legendary composers including Alan and Marilyn Bergman and the late great Stephen Sondheim, whose combined catalogues of memorable compositions are timeless treasures of the canon “★★★★ ...this ensemble of Australian talent was a riotous celebration of a woman whose musical legacy is rich, unique, and lasting” – Arts Hub “The applause is justifiably strong and heartfelt throughout. In fact, I would describe it as a warm embrace of the offering and the artistry involved.” – The Blurb
