Ali McGregor in DECADENCE
A decade ago, Ali McGregor ran away from Opera Australia to join the circus that was sideshow cabaret sensation La Clique.
She has since performed all around the world, won awards, broken glass and become cabaret royalty. Backed by an impeccable jazz band led by Sam Keevers, Decadence celebrates 10 years of one of Australia's most versatile cabaret voices with Ali's inimitable, laid-back charm.
Hear the voice that the Scotsman declared "transports you to a different plane, in a way that makes you forget everything you were doing before walking in to the theatre and everything you intended to be doing when you walk out again"
"By turns glamorous, sexy, intimate and hilarious" ★★★★★ The Age
"Money can't buy this much heart, sass and pure, mainlined joy" ***** Herald Sun
"McGregor's voice is phenomenal" ★★★★ Telegraph
