Part cabaret, part opera, all seduction

All aboard! You are on a ship heading towards the notorious rock where so many sailors have met their fates. Can you resist the alluring siren song?

Our trio of present-day sirens retell the story of Lorelei and begin to question the roles they were born to play. Ancient myth meets modern woman in an allegory of resilience and reclaiming one’s destiny.

Ali McGregor, Dimity Shepherd and Antoinette Halloran await you at the rock for an intoxicating encounter with love and death: part cabaret, part opera, all seduction. Their hypnotic music is to die for.

'I like my men like I like my whiskey...on the rocks'
