NED: A New Australian Musical in Concert
July 17, 2017 @ 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
An Ordinary Man. An Extraordinary Legend.
Be swept away by this Concert/Oratorio presentation featuring a stellar cast and stunning orchestra, a combined power of 50 performers. NED tells the story of Ned Kelly as a young man, a brother, a son and a mate. Beyond the iconic bushranger, this is the story of a boy who grew up too quickly and died too young. With hauntingly beautiful melodies, warm raucous humour and a rousing orchestral score that captures the sound of the Australian Bush, NED will leave you humming with this new uniquely Australian work.
One night only! Catch NED at the National Theatre Melbourne for its only Melbourne performance.
Music by Adam Lyon. Book by Anna Lyon and Marc McIntyre.
NED premiered at the Ulumbarra Theatre, Bendigo in 2015, to rave reviews.
‘Dramatically charged content, stirring, melodious music and terrific performances…’ -Simon Parris
