Waanginy: The Trees Speak transforming Kings Park into a nocturnal
wonderland of Noongar culture and ecological awareness over four nights. See the Australian premiere of Komische Oper Berlin’s dazzling The Magic Flute and many events exclusive to Perth, which means you cannot see them anywhere else in Australia.
A third of our events are free and people should catch our Tix for $36 deals to see
the greatest shows on earth right here in Perth. Highlights include Gatz from New
York’s Elevator Repair Service, the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, Dada
Masilo’s Giselle, the Vietnamese circus Lang Toi, the stunning The Great Tamer,

Chevron Gardens or catch a film under the stars at Lotterywest Films all summer long.
