A message from the Artistic Director, Linda Thompson:

Audiences please note that due to the extended lockdown announcement earlier this week, two of the four performances have been cancelled – July 29 and July 31. 

Tickets holders for the season: TICKETEK will be in touch with an offer to refund. If we can perform live, and you had already bought tickets, TICKETEK will contact you directly to give you an opportunity to re-book, before opening to the public.

Anyone reading who has the capacity to help fund our digital Enchanted Pig, and future work, we (a company of artists, musicians, creative and practical thinkers) would welcome donations of any size. You can do that here https://acoco.giveeasy.org/acoco-donation, and/or get in touch to discuss.

Award winning independent company Australian Contemporary Opera Co (ACOCo) celebrates a return to the Melbourne main-stage with the revival of Gale Edwards’ brilliant and acclaimed festival production of the London and New York hit, The Enchanted Pig. This heartwarming, uplifting, tuneful family show has all the hallmarks of The Princess Bride, Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella — with sophisticated appeal for all ages.

With dazzling costumes by Oscar winner Tim Chappel (The Masked Singer and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert), sparkling set by Joseph Noonan and dazzling lighting design by Jason Crick, ACOCo’s Australian premiere production of The Enchanted Pig is a delight. A humorous and heartwarming reflection on the nature of loving relationships – from the squabbling Mr and Mrs North Wind, to the mother who would do ‘anything for her precious little girl’, to true love discovered between a princess and “a lovely pig”. Flora’s journey around the world, to the moon, the sun, the milky way and back, in search of what she lost though impatience and a lack of trust, is filled with energy, heart and joy from start to finish.

July 29 – August 5
