Bernadette Robinson in "Songs For Nobodies".
Songs For Nobodies at Sydney Opera House
Following her sold-out season on London’s West End, Bernadette Robinson returns in the hit play “Songs For Nobodies”, a spellbinding one-woman show of imagined encounters between five divas: Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Edith Piaf and Maria Callas. These stars are joined by five “ordinary women”. Playwright Joanna Murray-Smith has mined a rich seam of longing, humour and quiet frustration to conjure the alchemic effect of these encounters. Directed by Simon Phillips, Robinson switches characters and vocals without a breath, each song delivered with passion and emotion.
