The Show Goes On” is a truism. It embodies the drama, humour, power, intelligence and artistry of some of the great divas of the last 75 years.

Judy GarlandEdith Piaf Shirley BasseyBarbra StreisandMaria Callas and more. Remarkable women who devoted themselves to their art and their audiences; who loved, lost and triumphed in public (and in private); who hungered for fame, and, having found it were sometimes broken by it.

In this triumphant new concert, leading Australian diva Bernadette Robinson brings to life the music of these iconic singers. In their own words she celebrates their artistry, their intelligence, their humour, their vulnerability and their power.

It will delight her many fans and astound those who see her for the first time.
