Elise presented the World Premiere DAHLESQUE Concert at the 2017 Adelaide Cabaret Festival from June 17-18 and most recently performed the show with the World renowned Melbourne Symphony Orchestra over 6 shows in April 2018.
This irreverent and magical concert explores the fantastical imagination and wickedly unforgettable characters of one of the world’s best selling authors. Featuring music from adaptations of Roald Dahl’s classic stories including Tim Minchin’s mega-hit Matilda, the classic Gene Wilder movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Pasek & Paul’s James and the Giant Peach, Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and original compositions of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes, all performed with an incredible 12 piece orchestra.
Written by Elise McCann and Richard Carroll, Musical Arrangements by Stephen Amos, Directed By Sheridan Harbridge and Ben Gerrard, Costume designed by Daniel Learmont Couture. DAHLESQUE is an evening of anarchic, outrageous, grotesque, moving, heart pounding, playful, rude and imaginative storytelling!
Elise most recently performed DAHLESQUE with the Auckland Philarmonia Orchestra on 11 May 2019 at the Auckland Town Hall.
