Change of line-up for two events

Dear ticket holders
We write to advise of a change of lineup to two events, which you have one or more tickets for.
Pietro Roffi has advised us that he is unable to travel from Italy to the Festival and sadly has to withdraw from the Festival this year.
In the meantime we have been able to make alternative arrangements for these two performances.
TWO MAD ITALIANS – We have Salvatore Greco on accordion who will join Davide Monti on violin in a fun-filled hour of musical jesting! Salvatore Greco has been performing and honing his skills as an accordionist since his childhood in Italy. He plays in a number of Melbourne-based ensembles, including Italian traditional music combo Bella Ciao and French bands La Mauvaise Reputation and Nuit Blanche. He has a special expertise in traditional Italian and European folk music and the gypsy waltzes much loved by accordionists the world over.
FESTIVAL FINALE DINNER – we have secured four upcoming Opera stars from Victoria Opera and the Melba Trust. They will present an evening of well-known opera classics, Gilbert & Sullivan and some surprises!
We are thrilled that we have been able to secure quality performers at this late stage. We hope you will keep your booking and enjoy the new lineup for these events.
For more information please see the website for these events.
Looking forward to seeing you at Festival 2018.
