The Melbourne International Arts Festival will bring the best in music, dance and theatre to Australia until October 27th.
Anyone boarding flights to Melbourne in the next couple of days will arrive in the Victorian capital when it is at its most vibrant.
It is currently spring time down under, but the temperatures are not the only thing hotting up, as until October 27th, the live music and arts venues in the city will be full of tourists and locals alike as they celebrate the Melbourne International Arts Festival.
This will be the final year that artistic director Brett Sheehy will be organising the festivities and he wants to go out with a bang. As a result, the 2012 event brings together great music, dance, theatre, film and opera.
Highlights include Anthony and the Johnsons, the Trons – a four piece robot band from New Zealand – and How High the Sky.
The latter will be held at the Polygot Theatre and is a new dramatic work specifically designed for children under the age of one.
