How to Kill your Husband and other handy hints

Christie Anderson, conductor and Nescha Jelk, director let you in to some the highlights of the cabaret opera How to Kill you Husbands. It’s a story of sex, love, murder and marriage. Sounds like a familiar plot, but this is no conventional opera by any account. For instance, the orchestra is called ‘the band’.

At the Don Dunstan Playhouse 10-12 June. Book tickets at premierticketek.com.au
