“the best musical of the 20th century” – TIME magazine

A shining star from the Golden Age of musicals, Carousel is a powerful story of love and redemption.

Exclusive to Adelaide, this concert production stars Ben Mingay as troubled carousel barker Billy Bigelow, whose romance with millworker Julie Jordan comes at a terrible price.

Richard Rodgers’ vivid score is brought to life by a talented all-Australian cast, the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and State Opera Chorus under the baton of Brett Weymark.

Carousel is famous for its epic music and powerful pathos. Anthems like “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and sit alongside musical classics such as “If I Loved You” and “June is Bustin’ Out All Over”.

Pity that the run had to be cut short. But I'm glad I saw it!

Any news on when we either get a refund for the cancelled show or can attend the next sitting?

Wondering if State Opera had a live stream of “The Doll” for those patrons who missed the performance last Friday due to restrictions, which was very disappointing.

Well done, everyone - it looks wonderful.

Such a pity !

Pizzagate stopped us from coming Friday. Not happy.

Missed out 😣😥

This was a great show, thank you.

So sorry to have missed this. Damn COVID!

It was such a good production

Wish I had been able to see this. Blessed to see the photographs

Yes, very good!

Today on Remembrance Day, we remember those who died or suffered for Australia's cause in all wars and armed conflicts.

Take time to listen and reflect with this performance of "We'll Gather Lilacs" from State Opera's Anzac Day special online concert.
