Ned Kelly - Perth Festival

  • No 1 Mill Jarrahdale Jarrahdale Rd Jarrahdale WA 6124 Australia (map)


Composer Luke Styles and librettist Peter Goldsworthy weave together the common Ned Kelly myth with lesser known extraordinary facts about the politics, loves and quirks of Australia’s legendary bushranger. Cross dressing, pig stealing, bee keeping, opium smoking, devout republican supporting, armour wearing loyal family men — that’s just part of the story of the notorious Kelly gang.

Superstar Australian baritone Samuel Dundas takes on the title role in a new-found space on the outskirts of Perth that provides the perfect setting, backdrop and link to Australia's frontier past.
