Trevor Ashley’s

Diamonds are for Trevor

Digital Season | Recorded in the Concert Hall in 2017

On Demand
Genre: Cabaret

Hot on the stilettos of sold out Sydney Opera House performances of “Liza’s Back! (is broken)”, the three-time Helpmann Award nominated (Les Miserables, Fat Swan, Diamonds Are For Trevor) and multi-award winning, irrepressible diva channels the Welsh-born Dame Shirley Bassey as only he can! 

With his trademark humour, wit, and unrivalled set of lungs, Ashley will  perform dozens of her classic hits accompanied by a stunning 24-piece orchestra and dressed by Academy Award® winner Tim Chappel as he tells the rags to riches story like it’s never, never, never been told before. 

Along with all the sequins, jewels, big gowns and bigger hair, expect to hear Big Spender, Goldfinger, Never, Never, Never, This is My Life, Get The Party Started, History Repeating and Diamonds are Forever - plus a few songs the Dame has never got around to singing!

As well as major musicals (including Hairspray and Priscilla), Ashley has played every major cabaret stage and festival across the country with his one-man shows, selling out numerous Sydney Opera House shows, garnering standing ovations and unanimous rave reviews.

Take a tour of Shirley’s life, complete with feathers, flash, and frequent diva tantrums. Hilarious, brilliant and often moving, when Ashley takes on the one and only Dame Shirley Bassey, it will prove once and for all that diamonds really are for Trevor.
