Who is Ilana Charnelle? It might be sex, cigarettes, lingerie, gin and speakeasies – but it’s also pure class. Forget skinny jeans, autotune and iPhones. It’s time for vintage glamour and old fashioned romance from the golden age of entertainment. After channelling Judy Garland and David Bowie for ACMI, amassing over 200,000 views on YouTube, and headlining a plethora of underground Melbourne institutions including Burlesque Bar, Speakeasy HQ, and Red Bennies, Ilana Charnelle premieres A Class Act – her debut solo cabaret. Scored by a suite of enchanting original songs, and musical director savant dandy Ned Dixon, A Class Act is a heartbreaking, honest and ultimately empowering hour of cabaret.

Following the publication of Carl Orff's Gisei, CPO now release its sister work: Felix Weingartner's one-act Die Dorfschule (The Village School) a work also based on the plot of Terakoya. Weingartner's masterfully crafted realization of the ancient Japanese drama centring on a village school, can now be contrasted with young Carl Orff's tentative early version.

In 1913, when he was only eighteen years old, Carl Orff finished his first opera, Gisei. This tragic story, featuring the sacrificial death of a child as well as Japanese culture in general, so greatly inspired the young composer that throughout his life he remained fond of Japan. In Japanese tragedy he found numerous similarities to the ancient Greek tragedies of Sophocles, with which he constantly engaged himself intensively.

Stephen Stubbs - Handel Acis and Galatea, HWV 49 (2016)  Music

Both Acis and Galatea and the cantata Sarei troppo felice heard here represent decisive turning points in Handel's career. The Italian cantata came at the beginning of the one and half decades spent by Handel in the service of various patrons. Acis and Galatea marks the highpoint of this phase and therefore, like the cantata before it, clearly renders recognizable the musical means available to him in the private ensembles of his employers. Moreover, Acis and Galatea contains the musical and textual seeds of the English oratorio, which after 1742 completely supplanted opera compositions.

Michael Nyman’s one-act chamber opera The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat takes as its subject Dr P, a man suffering from visual agnosia, or ‘mental blindness’, and is adapted from the neurological study in the book of the same name by Oliver Sacks. For Nyman, Dr P ‘requires music as a lifeline, cue, clue, cure’, living as he does in a world lacking visual meaning. It is through his musical gifts that Dr P reclaims meaning from chaos, Nyman’s tautly conceived masterpiece providing a perfect medium through which the moving drama can be explored.
