Nominated for Best Cabaret, FRINGE WORLD Festival 2013. Penny Shaw & Fiona Cooper Smyth play the duelling divas; competing for not only the top notes but also for handsome WA Opera baritone Robert “The Phantom” Hofmann’s affection! Opera’s greatest hits are given the DivaLicious treatment, accompanied by “perfection on piano”, Tommaso Pollio. This fully-staged, fast paced and highly original show changes mood and genre almost as frequently as the girls change their fabulous frocks; from Mozart to Mamma Mia, from Queen of the Night to Queen, anything goes! 

"Two rival sopranos! Dramatic, funny, even poignant. A treat for those who love good singing and a good laugh. Go Divalicious!" Ben Elton 

“Smyth and Shaw blend terrifically together. The essence of major operatic or stage moments are enhanced but never compromised. Their vocal control and colour allows for snappy sketch-like delivery, choreography and imposed humour to be built like a scaffold around the traditional structure. Mozart’s transformed ‘Queen of the Night’ aria is a worthy example of such creativity and mix of performance skill.” SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE Paul Nolan – Sydney Arts Guide



“All three singers have beautiful voices and I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon listening to notes being sung that some of us can only dream of hitting.” ADELAIDE FRINGE FESTIVAL: Charissa McCluskey-Garcia The Clothesline  http://theclothesline.com.au/divalicious-fringe-review/


 “Fiona Cooper Smyth and Penny Shaw had me in stitches as they rolled out one hilarious musical tableau after another. Perfect for opera newbies as well as aficionados who relish fine singing but just want a good laugh now and again. Loved it.”  William Yeoman (The West Australian, Books Editor and Arts Writer)
