Ceberano’s Cabaret Fest Sets Record

The 2012 Adelaide Cabaret Festival – the first with soul singer Kate Ceberano as artistic director – set a box office and attendance record for the 12-year-old Australian event.

It drew 40,000, up 12 percent from last year, and 30 of 143 performances sold out.

“We honestly couldn’t have asked for better audiences, their passionate participation in connecting with these talented artists and willingness to embark on a united journey through song, dance, comedy, music, and illusion was a magical experience to witness,” Ceberano said.

She’s back at the helm for the 2013 Cabaret Festival next June.
