Penny & Fiona play the duelling divas; competing for not only the top notes but also for handsome WA Opera baritone and guest singer Robert “The Phantom” Hofmann’s affection! Opera’s greatest ‘hits’ are given the DivaLicious treatment. From Mozart to Mamma Mia, from Queen of the Night to Queen, anything goes! (Includes Phantom of the Opera!)

“From Abba to Die Zauberflote, DivaLicious’ duelling divas Fiona Cooper Smyth and Penny Shaw had me in stiches as they rolled out one hilarious musical tableau after another – all done in the best possible taste, of course. 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

"An entertaining, laugh-out-loud production full of booze-fuelled cattiness and outstanding operatic vocals" Out-in-Perth

"Their show, full of sharp satire and tongue-in-cheek humour, can be enjoyed the same by an amateur opera-goer or the most seasoned and discerning viewer." Colosoul Magazine

"From the moment they walk on in stunning gowns with loads of sparkling bling, the pair have the audience in the palms of their collective hands." ArtsHub

DivaLicious - Defying Gravity!

DivaLicious – Defying Gravity. NEW show which was almost sold out at Fringe World last year and 100% 5 star reviews

Mortality, vitality and virility are all under the knife as cutting-edge classics mix with the best of Broadway in this Botox-pumping, lipo-sucking, wrinkle-relaxing cabaret that will take years off your life! Join these comic cougars of coloratura in their latest hit show as they explore the dubious joys of being "midults" in a world which worships youthful beauty, smooth brows and skinny thighs. Accompanied by the groovy sounds of bass, drums and keyboard, DivaLicious Divas, Fiona Cooper Smyth and Penny Shaw will attempt to defy gravity, claw back their lost youth, and launch themselves into the stratosphere! High notes, heavenly bodies, the count-down has begun... M-rated. M for Mature, M for Mum's-night-out and M for More champagne. (NOT Menopause!)

"Fresh, funny, feminist, with fabulous frocks, DivaLicious - Defying Gravity is a celebration of a show, where the audience leave smiling and singing. Not to be missed." Kimberley Shaw

"Fiona Cooper Smith and Penny Shaw provide such a fantastic night out. They combine their two powerful soprano voices to tackle some songs that shock, make you laugh out loud, and make you feel insecure – in the best way possible. We are all going to have an experience with “gravity” one day. They transport you into a world of an untouched cabaret market which proves to be a goldmine of success." Dircksey Magazine 5 STARS

DivaLicious and the Impresario

As seen at Sydney Opera House & Fringe World Festival  

Diva vs diva! Who is the real Prima Donna? Join DivaLicious in their updated version of Mozart's original Duelling Diva story. The opera company is going under! Can a rich sponsor put art on a business basis without losing its integrity? Premiered in 1786, this story could have been "tweeted" yesterday. Comic opera with a DivaLicious twist...

“The Impresario is not a new work, but the DivaLicious ladies have taken Mozart’s little satire and turned it into a rollicking riot of a send-up.” Arts Hub, 4.5 stars

“Smyth and Shaw blend terrifically together. The essence of major operatic or stage moments are enhanced but never compromised.” Paul Nolan, Sydney Arts Guide
