Bachelor of Performing Arts: Second Year Production

Aesop’s Fables is an original musical theatre piece based upon the famous morality tales of the ancient Greek slave, Aesop. This production draws upon and adapts a selection of the most theatrical of Aesop’s 358 stories. Some will be familiar, some obscure, but all are witty and thought-provoking.

Aesop’s Fables represents the next phase in our practice-as-research teaching approach, a process whereby students engage with theoretical concepts, as well as the formal structures and the conventions of musical theatre creatively. Musical theatre is a collaborative art form, and this project not only involves theatre, singing and composition students working together, but marks an exciting collaboration between the Centre for Theatre and Performance and the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music at Monash. ‘Come and set aside your quarrel, and heed the moral that Aesop has to tell; let him teach us well.’
