Magnifica Splendido

Adelaide Cabaret Festival (Kaurna Country)

Celebrate suburban identities with a magical shimmer. A little bit talent quest and a whole lotta Italo Disco!


Magnifica Splendido is a dazzling extravaganza inspired by the joy of homegrown TV talent shows, and Fantastico – an Italian late night variety show hosted by the inimitable Raffaela Carra. 

Witness locals sharing their ‘party trick’, revel in the resplendence of sequined, non-stretch onesies, and let your inner disco passion run free. Special Guests soon to be announced.


Creators: Bec Reid and Tristan Meecham

Sound Design: Luke Smiles

Producer: Anna Pidgeon

Performers: Bec Reid, Tristan Meecham, Luke Smiles, Simone Page Jones, The Huxleys and many local experts.
