Nominations for the Helpmann Awards were announced last night, with Victorian Opera receiving seven nominations, including six for 2013’s critically-acclaimed Nixon in China. A fantastic start to the week!

Earlier this year Nixon in China has already chalked up four accolades through the Green Room Awards in similar categories – so fingers crossed for the Helpmanns! For the full list of our Green Room awards, look back at our Behind the Curtain blog here. The Helpmann Awards are a celebration of excellence in Australia’s performing arts sector, including comedy, musical theatre, dance and opera. The awards will be announced on Monday 18 August.

With a team lead by director/writer Naomi Edwards and featuring David Hobson (composer and singer) and Adam Gardnir (designer), a series of workshops were held at the end of May to explore the themes of the moon, sleep and dreaming.
