Unfortunately, it's in Australia.
The Secret Garden returns to Australia for a 25th anniversary production which reunites the original Broadway creative team of director Susan H Schulman, choreographer Michael Lichtefeld and designer Heidi Ettinger. Based on the popular literary classic by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this sumptuous musical will open at Sydney Lyric Theatre in August 2020.
Opera Australia Artistic Director Lyndon Terracini said, "We are very excited to continue Opera Australia's mission of telling narrative through music and drama next year with these two wonderful classical musicals. I saw Fiddler on the Roof at the Jewish Museum in New York, and know Opera audiences will be fascinated to experience this new version, and to have the opportunity to present an astonishing new production of The Secret Garden is too good to be true."
"Producing The Secret Garden in 1995 was one of the most special experiences of my career, and now to produce it again with the original creative team is a dream come true," added John Frost. "And when I saw this brilliant new version of Fiddler on the Roof in New York, I knew immediately it was a perfect show to follow my other collaborations with Opera Australia."
Perhaps the will broadcast it to cinemas or release it on video.
