Pappalardo’s “Carmen” is designed to be a loud and bold affair, pulling the audience in from the first overture.

“... the young dancers were sensational and gave terrific performances. Carmen was... proud, haughty and aloof in a fine performance with some dazzling dancing. Don Jose was passionately performed by Brendan Bradshaw in a splendid dramatic performance. Micaela was sensationally danced by Yuiko Masukawa... This was a most interesting version excellently danced...”

HAPPILY EVER AFTER by Babuska [LIVE] music on stage


These aren’t the fairy tales Granny told you before bedtime... 

In Happily Ever After, the Babushka trio turns our best loved children's stories inside-out through the raucous and raunchy music of Kurt Weill, his fellow trouble-makers, and his modern kindred spirits like Tom Waits, David Bowie and Nina Simone. These dangerous divas entertain in this dark, seductive and wickedly funny cabaret that gives Rapunzel a sharp new haircut, puts Goldilocks in charge of the three bears and gives a whole new meaning to Puss in Boots.

HAPPILY EVER AFTER by Babuska 
LIVE on stage
SAT 30 JUNE 8PM 2018


The classic sounds of the Weimar republic are weaved into a joyous, creepy and bizarre world of vignettes courtesy of Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm.
