Kiss of the Spider Woman

Concert or Performance

18 Nov 2019 to 28 Dec 2019

In a dark South American prison, two very different men share a small cell. Valentin is a Marxist revolutionary who refuses to betray his comrades. Molina is a window dresser who distracts himself by escaping to a fantasy world of movies starring the glamorous diva, Aurora. Valentin cannot stand Molina’s cinematic fantasies and so draws a line on the floor to stop Molina from coming near him. Surely that will keep them apart.

From Kander and Ebb, the team behind smash-hit shows Chicago and Cabaret, and acclaimed playwright Terrence McNally (Master Class), comes a provocative tale of love, imagination, and the friendship that develops when humanity is pushed to its limits. It is a powerful and emotive story made famous by the original novel and an Oscar-winning film, brought to life here as a dazzling major musical production for the first time ever in Australia.

Musical legend Caroline O’Connor (Bombshells) returns to MTC to take on the role of exotic film goddess, Aurora, in a show that’s set to sizzle and surprise, directed by Helpmann Award-winner Dean Bryant (Sweet Charity).
