Something wicked this way comes to Perth this October when Candlelight appears with a spine-tingling Halloween special.
Forget the tricks because it’ll be time to treat yourself to a night of frightfully spectacular music as candles flicker, shadows linger, and a string quintet makes their instruments screech, scratch and scream melodically through the night.
The night will be dark and the tunes will be eerie as the glow of hundreds of candles fights what’s lurking in the shadows. As audiences look upon the brilliantly lit stage, a string quintet will perform songs including “This is Halloween”, “Creep” and “Zombie”.
The theme song from Ghostbusters will also sound throughout the room while you can’t have Halloween without Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” as well as the Rocky Horror Picture Show’s “Time Warp”.
Audiences will also be clutching onto the edge of their seats with renditions of Steve Miller Band’s “Abracadabra”, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Phantom of the Opera”, Danny Elfman’s “Tales from the Crypt” and the prelude of Bernard Herrmann’s Psycho (a suite for strings) among others.
A sea of candles will light up the Perth venue (to be announced) but their flickering glow will dance with the shadows to add an unearthly dimension to the evening.
There will be two spine-chilling performances on the evening of Saturday 29 October, at 6:30pm and 8:30pm. Treat yourself to a night of ghoulish sounds and then head out into the night.
