Orpheus in the Underworld - May 1973

Actually I had done this show once before when I was a singing student at "The Dame Nellie Melba Memorial Conservatorium of music". Boy, what a mouthful that was to say when ever anyone asked me where I was studying. No wonder they changed the name to "The Melba Conservatorium". The music of the show was composed by Jacques Offenbach and the famous music "The Can Can" was one of the pieces in this show.

This was a humorous scene where some of the adult cast played children. They were all on stage kneeling, wearing fake feet on there knees and the men were singing in falsetto voices.

The F111 jet fighter was in the news at the time of this show. Hence the name on the balloon basket.
