About the event

3 course dinner and 2 twenty minute live sets

Take this longing:

Longings for love and safety soon deepen into intangible yearnings …

The Germans experience ‘sensucht’, that inconsolable longing in the human heart for things far-off and indefinable. 

The Welsh suffer ‘hiraeth’, a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return and which maybe never was. 

The Portuguese feel ‘saudade’, an intense desire for something unspoken, the presence of absence, the love that remains after love is gone … 

In this brand new production, multi award winning opera and cabaret star Jacqui Dark, and pianist extraordinaire Daryl Wallis, lead you on a poignant exploration of all the things we long for and long to leave behind.

 “ …  tortured complexity and heartbreaking emotion, while singing with pitch perfect beauty. Her amazing stamina and control, powerful top notes and raw emotion are breathtaking.”  Adelaide Theatre Guide 


“fearless and beautiful.”  The Australian

“sensational”  Broadway World
