SIDE BY SIDE
Ever wonder what Opera singers get up to below the stage? After hours? Grab your tickets, a glass of champagne or perhaps another vodka stinger, as Classical meets Cabaret downstairs at His Majesty's. Side by Side, Sopranos Daniella Sicari and Eimear Foley bring to life the art form of songs by Stephen Sondheim. Featuring favourites such as: Send in The Clowns, Ladies Who Lunch, and No One Is Alone. Accompanied by fellow WAAPA graduate, Joshua James Webb, the trio return to Perth, having worked internationally and nationally. So, saunter down the stairs and join us for a little night of music and fabulous female energy.
Daniella and Eimear are graduates of the Classical Voice/Opera Studies course at WAAPA. Post WAAPA, Daniella did her Masters at the Royal Northern College of Music, performing the roles of Despina, Lady Ellington, La Fée and Gretel. Since then, she’s worked with various opera festivals such as Bergen National Opera, Buxton International Festival and Waterperry Opera. Sondheim wise, Dani is currently preparing for the role of Anne Egerman. After WAAPA, Eimear went on to study a Master’s of Musical Theatre at New York University. Favourite New York credits include: On the Town (Claire de Loone), She Loves Me (Amalia), The 25th Annual.. Spelling Bee (Rona), Broadway Smash (Mama Rose/Reno Sweeney), and workshopping Larry O’Keefe and Nell Benjamin’s new work, Life of The Party.
This event has now ended.

"Really likeable, dynamic and charming presenters, they sing beautifully and light up the stage.
Highlights include Daniella’s rendition of ‘On the Steps of the Palace’ and Eimear’s ‘Send in the Clowns’, and the duets including ‘Ladies who Lunch’ and of course the title song ‘Side by Side’, absolutely burst with talent.
Some of the best use of the stage that I have seen in this venue, the show is smooth and slick, and features the expert piano accompaniment of Joshua James Webb (whose single singing line is also a treat)."
