based on the novel of the same name by Ken Ke­sey. Kim Hard­wick di­rects Dale Wasser­man’s adap­ta­tion of this story about a psy­chi­atric clinic and its in­hab­i­tants. In a world where san­ity means con­form­ity and fol­low­ing the rules is the only way to sur­vive, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is a pow­er­ful ex­plo­ration of the beauty and the dan­ger of be­ing an orig­i­nal. Star­ring An­thony Goo­ley as McMur­phy. Gnarly But­tons New and con­tem­po­rary mu­sic has in­spired this pro­gram’s se­lec­tion by the Sydney Sym­phony Or­ches­tra’s chief con­duc­tor David Robert­son, fea­tur­ing clar­inetist Francesco Ce­lata and Mark Sparks on flute. Kate Neal was com­mis­sioned to write a new work for this per­for­mance.
