"You'd be surprised how much it costs to look this cheap" - DOLLY PARTON

"Give a girl the right shoes and she'll conquer the world." - BETTE MIDLER

Following in the footsteps of some of the greatest divas of our time, the festival welcomes the ladies back to the stage for The LINDAUER COMEDY DIVAS.

A date with these ladies is a ride of a lifetime. Armed with shopping bags of charm, sass, sex this slick hour and half showcase is one of the festival's favourite events.

The LINDAUER COMEDY DIVAS is riotous night out for both the girls and the lads and everyone who has experienced the charms of the fairer sex.

The night will be hosted by the capable hands of Michele A'Court (NZ). Featured acts include international comedian Janey Godley (Scot), Jan Maree (NZ) and a bevy of hot Wellington lady comedians as follows.

Wellingtonian, Caroline E Waltz, has humoured NZ audiences for a number of years, makes a welcome appearance.

We are also delighted to introduce Olivia Bryant, Melanie Hamilton and Jenny McCarther to the Diva stage. Fresh from performances in the critically acclaimed 'Frolikhausen' at the Cabaret Bar, they are more than ready to entertain.

FOR YOUR SANITY DO NOT ENCOURAGE DIVAS TO LEAVE THE STAGE

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
