Accompanied by a stunning 24-piece orchestra lead by the iconic Musical Director John Foreman, Trevor Ashley is returning to Sydney Opera House on Thursday, March 2, this time at the Concert Hall, with his acclaimed two-act show, DIAMONDS ARE FOR TREVOR, celebrating Dame Shirley Bassey’s 80th birthday in what will be the official curtain raiser for the 2017 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.
Nominated for three Helpmann Awards (Les Miserables, Fat Swan, Diamonds Are For Trevor) Trevor Ashley says that, “The Shirley Bassey songbook is full of incredible songs, and I can’t wait to sing many of them again on a special night.”
With dazzling costumes designed by Academy Award® winner Tim Chappel, and armed with his trademark humour and unrivalled set of lungs, Ashley will perform dozens of Shirley Bassey hits as he takes you on a tour of her life – complete with feathers, flash and frequent diva tantrums.
Doors to the Concert Hall open at 7 pm and the show starts at 8 pm.
