Australian Chamber Orchestra presents
Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra perform a wide array of music from 1990’s grunge to Beethoven, with awe-inspiring footage of surfing, the ocean and the Australian desert projected onto an onstage screen.
In May, when the surf is at its best, Richard Tognetti took a crew of surfers, musicians and film makers to Ningaloo Reef, where the desert meets the sea. They spent two unforgettable weeks surfing, making music and filming and the result is The Reef.
Immerse yourself in Jon Frank's images of the ocean, the world's best fin-free surfers, the arid desert landscape and the starry sky, as an incredible array of music swirls around you. You'll never forget it.
