VELVET REWIRED FOR OPERA HOUSE: A glittering spectacle of circus, cabaret and a love-letter to disco, Velvet Rewired will be presented in the Opera House Studio from 7 October 14 November, . The fabulous Marcia Hines (Jesus Christ Superstar, HAIR) reprises her role from the hit-show Velvet as the Diva. Premiering at the 2020 Adelaide Fringe festival to glowing reviews, Velvet Rewired continues the story of a young man on his path to self-discovery as he returns to the club seeking redemption.

Led by the fearlessly fabulous Marcia Hines, Craig Reid (La Clique, La Soiree) returns as the Incredible Hula Boy and Joe Accaria (Once, Dream Lover) as the DJ and mix-master. To the hedonistic tunes of perpetual anthems like Aint No Body (Chaka Khan and Rufus), Its Raining Men (The Weather Girls) and Born to Be Alive (Patrick Hernandez), Velvet Rewired pays homage to disco greats and New Yorks Studio 54, the infamous club synonymous with a celebration of cultural acceptance, glitter and disco. Sydney Opera House Head of Contemporary Performance, Ebony Bott, says: I am thrilled to invite audiences in for a celebration of the glitz and glamour of the disco era.

The queen of disco herself, Marcia Hines, along with an incredibly talented cast, deliver a performance of circus, burlesque and cabaret that will give audiences a dose of feel-good disco fever. Directed by Craig Ilott (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Love Song), Velvet Rewired is a seamless integration of acrobatics, aerialists and vocalists who deliver a performance drenched in high energy and dizzying nostalgia. Ilott directed the original Velvet that premiered at the Opera House in 2015.

Velvet has left behind glitter and good vibes after more than 1200 performances in some of the worlds biggest fringe festivals including Adelaide and Edinburgh, in cruise ships in the Caribbean, and theatres in Germany, France and Italy.
