A fabulously fun award-winning musical based on the adored movie, Legally Blonde The Musical, follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Action-packed and exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances – this musical is so much fun, it should be illegal!

Elle Woods appears to have it all. Her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle charms her way into the prestigious law school. While there, she struggles with peers, professors and her ex. With the support of some new friends, though, Elle quickly realises her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.

This production contains adult themes and strong language.

Henry Purcell’s dramatic work tells the compelling story of Dido, Queen of Carthage, and Aeneas, a Trojan hero. They fall madly in love, but an evil sorceress plots to cause the downfall of Carthage, and with that, the destruction of Dido and Aeneas’ love. Aeneas seeks to defy the gods in order to remain with his beloved Dido. Dido on the other hand, feels betrayed by his perceived disloyalty and her desperation triggers a chain of events that, like most operas, does not end well…

Special thanks to Dr Glenda Powell OAM, whose long-standing support of the Val Machin Opera Scenes, named in memory of her mother, has continued to provide our emerging opera students with invaluable experiences at the Conservatorium.
