The best of our city in summer is back with a vengeance as Sydney Festival returns in its 39th year. 2015 will see a spectacular program of free and ticketed events spanning contemporary and classical music, theatre, dance, visual arts, circus, cabaret and much more. In an unforgettable music experience, Tex Perkins delves into the dark repertoire of Johnny Cash to recreate his seminal 1968 Folsom Prison shows in the haunting surrounds of Parramatta Gaol in Far From Folsom. Set in Australia’s oldest serving prison, the recently decommissioned Parramatta Gaol reopens its doors to the public for the first time in the world premiere event. Staged in the gaol’s former exercise yard, the outdoor performance is dramatically framed by the former prison’s towering razor-wired limestone walls. A work of significance, scope and ambition, this performance is a unique and unforgettable music experience at Sydney Festival 2015.
