Six the Musical at Sydney Opera House

Thu 9th December, 2021 – Sat 2nd April, 2022
Sydney Opera House
Bennelong Point, Sydney
Price: $49 – $145
After a sold out run in 2020, this pop musical giving voice to Henry VIII's wives (through 21st-century girl power) returns to Sydney.

The UK’s critically acclaimed Six the Musical is back at the Sydney Opera House for its second run in Australia. This pop-fuelled musical is packed with satire and sass; it’s a witty take on the history of Henry VIII’s six wives (divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived). The uplifting musical puts these Tudor queens in the spotlight, handing them microphones as they transform into pop princesses to tell their stories.

The show gives Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard and Catherine Parr the space to reclaim their lives and their stories. This celebration of women throughout history will be accompanied by an all-female band that counts among their influences Adele, Lily Allen and Ariana Grande.

Six the Musical is the work of 24-year-old Cambridge graduates Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, who co-wrote its lyrics and music. Since its debut in 2017 at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this eccentric performance has captured a global audience, and its first Sydney season in 2020 sold out.
