Living With Devils – A Tasmanian Celebration

Saturday 18 May 2024 6pm

Conducted by Gregory Stephens.

Following on from the ratings success of the 2021 documentary Quoll Farm, Living with Devils is set to capture the hearts and minds of audiences all over again.

Join us for a special screening of this new documentary with the soundtrack performed live by the TSO. Composed by Maria Grenfell, long-time collaborator of the orchestra, Living With Devils follows acclaimed film-maker Simon Plowright as he spends a year in northwest Tasmania living with the iconic but endangered Tasmanian Devil.

Fascinating and unique, this immersive concert experience will charm and delight the whole family.
