Arts Centre Melbourne 23 - 27 January, 2013
A collective of pure talent; BLAZE is the show that brings the raw energy of street and break dance together with some of the most advanced digital projection and the hottest music in the world. With the success of shows such as So You Think You Can Dance and Australia's Got Talent, our appetite for street dance is booming and now in their first ever tour of Australia, the BLAZE crew are heading to the Arts Centre Melbourne.
The World Loves Melbourne was delighted to be invited to the exclusive preview of the all new BMW 7 series at BMW Melbourne.
The World Loves Melbourne is giving readers the opportunity to win an iconic Campari 2013 Calendar (thanks to Campari).
The theme for the 2013 calendar is 'Kiss Superstition Goodbye'. The calendar features Penelope Cruz boldly defying a series of mystical superstitions.

The World Loves Melbourne is giving away 2 calendars.
How To Enter

The judges decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into.
Here is some more background to the Calendar -
The Calendar showcases Campari’s latest female protagonist in 13 visually stunning shots, as she defies some of the world’s greatest superstitions. Posing in a number of magnificent dresses, our heroine has passion and charisma, inspiring confidence as she engages with each mystical scenario.
The photography is stunning. Having travelled around the world as a photographer, Kristian made Paris his home and spent the majority of his working time in London. His work has included photographs for magazines such as Vogue Hellas, Harper’s Bazaar, Stiefelkonig and Vogue Gioiello, photographing models including Gisele Bundchen, Amber Arbucci and Heidi Klum. In 2004 Kristian's photographic work featured on the front cover of Duran Duran's Astronaut album.
The Campari Calendar was launched in 2000 and has grown to become a globally celebrated annual event. Each year only 9,999 Calendars are printed across the globe and are not available to purchase – they are gifts for friends of Campari – making it a much sought after piece of work. 2013 will mark the 14th edition of the Campari Calendar.
Following its triumphant season in London’s West End, the acclaimed revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s record-breaking musical CATS comes to Australia for a strictly limited season, starring DELTA GOODREM in the prized role of Grizabella. Opening in Melbourne at The Regent Theatre then touring to Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, CATS is set to have audiences purring with pleasure. The World Loves Melbourne walked the red carpet and had an amazing night at CATS in the iconic Regent Theatre. What a performance!
Dandenong has never seen its equal. The Chinese Cultural Works Lights Spectacular has finally come to Melbourne after being a hit sensation across China and Europe.
Step right up! For 10 days only until January 14! In a world premiere event, the producers of the biggest selling magic show in the world (The Illusionists) have teamed up with the award winning puppeteers of War Horse to present a thrilling turn of the century circus spectacular with all the thrill and daredevil entertainment one would expect from the circus, with an exciting new twist.
The MGallery Literary Collection of events which launched earlier this year at Mount Lofty House in the Adelaide Hills rolled into Melbourne, with The Como Melbourne hosting a literary night to remember. The World Loves Melbourne was invited to a rich night of top class hospitality from The Como Melbourne and compelling literary inspiration from Debra Oswald.
The Dandenong Festival of Light is a celebration of colours, creatures and Chinese culture. The World Loves Melbourne was invited to come and experience the magic of this special event, back for its second year.
Saturday night, the highly sought-after "secret" picnic, Dîner en Blanc, drew a crowd of 3000 people to Bondi Beach for a spectacular event, made even more special as the iconic Sydney beach has never before been used to host a dinner party of such scale.
Melbournites can only drool. Diner en Blanc is a global phenomenon held at the finest cities and locations. We celebrate the event in Sydney - which is exclusive for those who get nominated by a friend or who have been part of a past event. You get on a waiting list and can't just rock up.
Where would we hold such an event in Melbourne? Methinks St Kilda is our best location for a stylish beach party. Guests have to dress in white and bring their own gourmet picnic and seating is extremely particular.
The Diner En Blanc global phenomenon started from humble beginnings in Paris 25 years ago. What began as a small gathering now attracts tens of thousands of people across five continents and claims the title of the world’s largest secret dinner party.
Get ready! Dream Lover: The Bobby Darin Musical is coming to Sydney! We attended (Leo and Christine) the media launch at The Sydney Lyric Theatre where we were told by Stuart Ayres, NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events that legendary performer David Campbell will play the lead role.
This is a WORLD PREMIERE NEW Australian musical only performing in Sydney launching this September at the Sydney Lyric Theatre; but we anticipate large interest from Melbournians! We were part of a media contingent hearing about this new show for the first time and were able to interview David Campbell.
The arts are a strong part of Melbourne culture and Melbourne is no stranger to attracting world renowned artists to showcase their work in the city. The World Loves Melbourne was invited to an exclusive media event at NGV for the Degas exhibition.
In its world premiere, Degas: A New Visionpresents the largest display of Edgar Degas’ works to ever come to Australia, and forms the most comprehensive retrospective of his works in decades. Curated by the world’s pre-eminent expert on Edgar Degas, Henri Loyrette, the exhibit will feature more than 200 pieces that showcase Degas’ talent in a new light; not only as a great master of painting, but also as a master of drawing, printmaking, sculpture and photography.
The World Loves Melbourne was invited to the 2015 Lavazza Italian Film Festival and it was so much fun!
