2023 Season

This season is a celebration. With all the hoo-ha of pandemics and the planet dying and the decline of democracy and the general air of imminent apocalypse, we thought it would be good to offer you a season which cuts an optimistic path through the demented wonderland of the twenty-first century.

Belvoir is your yellow brick road* through 2023. Heart, courage and brains, in theatrical technicolour.

These shows run the gamut of what theatre can offer, from Thomas Weatherall’s exquisite hour-long monologue to the wild three-act fantasia of The Master and Margarita, with its live music and big ensemble cast.

There’s a Palawa tragedy, a Sydney drama, a Chinese-Australian comedy, and a Broadway musical. There’s a concert-show, and a cabaret play. There’s even a lesbian divorce comedy.

We’re continuing our headlong love of Australian stories – seven of them, most made specially for Belvoir. And as always there are classics, but this year one is a musical and one is an adaptation of a novel. We went looking for joy and we found it in new places. Which is what Belvoir is for.

There’s a lot of music in the 2023 season, including our first ever Stephen Sondheim musical, the delicious Into the Woods. Why is there a lot of music? Perhaps because we’ve all had enough reality in life lately to double down on realism in the theatre. If only life could burst into song like theatre can.

Where the season begins with a monologue it ends with an extravaganza. We dreamt up this adaptation of The Master and Margarita during the darkest days of the lockdown. It is a celebration of theatre and theatricality, of why we need it in our cities, our lives. Its symphony of stories within stories, exuberant joy, and insistence that love and imagination are the greatest gifts we possess make it the perfect culmination of our dance through 2023.

So we’re asking you all to join us for the whole year by getting yourself and everyone you know season tickets. That’s Belvoir – the whole undertaking is what counts. We keep going, show after show, year after year, through thick and thin, chasing the dream.

Join us.
