WA Stories: Story 3 | Hope, Hardship and a Fortunate Life

From the orchestra that breaks the rules, comes a new chamber music series for the 21st century.

Dive into a spellbinding odyssey where extraordinary music, captivating visuals and vivid narration unveil stories of renowned and forgotten figures that made a stamp on WA History: Story 3 is about 'Hope, Hardship and a Fortunate Life: Albert Facey.'
Experience a heartfelt adaptation of one of the most-read Australian stories narrated by Facey's own grandchild, alongside some of the most beautiful music ever written of a boy from Wickepin who lived during the era of horse-drawn transport, through two world wars, surviving debilitating grief and injury, alongside one of the most moving love stories.
Presented over two nights under Otto the Blue Whale in Hacket Hall at WA Museum, Boola Bardip.
