Celtic Illusion also offers an incredible soundtrack composed by a stellar team, including Angela Little who co-composed Baz Luhrman’s film Australia, as well as Steve Skinner who has arranged and produced for artists such as Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder and the Broadway musical Rent.

Now it is your chance to witness the magic that is Celtic Illusion.

Creative Team

ANTHONY STREET

Anthony joined the Australian Irish Dance company shortly before 2000, going on to perform at numerous corporate events and venues including the MCG, Hamer Hall (Melbourne Arts Centre) and the Sydney Opera House. At the age of 19 he set off on a 5-month tour that would turn into an eight-year career travelling the world, including a residency in Dublin with Dance of Desire as well as tours of France and Germany, before being cast as principal dancer for Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance.

Anthony’s next dream was to create his own production and after months of stressful preparation, in November 2011 Celtic Illusion was born. Now the popular stage show regularly performs to sell-out audiences across Australia, with Anthony performing the multi-faceted roles of director, producer, choreographer and lead dancer.

ANGELA LITTLE

Angela is a multi-talented composer, singer, orchestral arranger, songwriter and pianist who composed the incredible contemporary score for Celtic Illusion. Angela’s best known work to date was on Baz Luhrmann’s epic film Australia for which she co-composed and scored additional music for the film, leading to a nomination for an AFI Award for Best Original Score in 2009. Angela was also the co-writer and singer of the film’s love song ‘By The Boab Tree’ which was the first song featured on the film’s end credits and was amongst 49 songs short-listed for an Academy Award for Best Original Song from a Motion Picture in 2009. Her work was also nominated for a number of other national and international awards, including an APRA-AGSC Screen Music Award (AUS) and a Golden Satellite Award (USA).

Before working on Australia Angela was one of only four students nationwide selected to study for a Masters Degree in Screen Composition at the Australian Film, Television & Radio School (AFTRS) in 2007. Angela has since composed and edited music for a wide array of other film, TV and theatre projects for clients including Southern Star, FOX 8, Nickelodeon, The Bell Shakespeare Company, Great Southern Land and AFTRS.
