A Flea in Her Ear Here is a mod­ern adap­ta­tion by An­drew Up­ton of Georges Fey­deau’s 1907 play that re­places the scan­dal of mere adul­tery with some­thing out­ra­geous enough to serve in these more deca­dent times. Si­mon Phillips di­rects it with a feel­ing for the in­ex­orable logic that un­der­lies the ab­sur­dity of it all, and a splen­didly chore­ographed cas­cade of stage busi­ness, full of doors, stair­cases, se­cret cup­boards Long String In­stru­ment Amer­i­can ex­per­i­men­tal mu­si­cian Ellen Full­man and Theresa Wong come to­gether for a Sydney Fes­ti­val in­stal­la­tion. Full­man is the cre­ator of the Long String In­stru­ment, play­ing the 25m-span­ning in­stru­ment, pro­duc­ing sitar-like drones and ethe­real notes. Sydney Town Hall, 483 Ge­orge Street, Sydney. Jan­uary 13, 8pm; Jan­uary 14, 6pm. Tick­ets: $36$40. Book­ings: 1300 856 876.
