At Last: Elenoa Rokobaro in Concert

Date: 17 Jun 2020

Live from the Old Fitzroy Theatre in Woolloomooloo, At Last stars Elenoa Rokobaro in an innovative live concert captured by nine cameras and streamed globally.

Showcasing songs by artists including Etta James, Alicia Keys, Prince and Michael Jackson, At Last is “like a soundtrack to my life” says Rokobaro.  “These are the songs I grew up with.”

Rokobaro is the youngest of seven kids, all of them musically talented. Her family heritage is Fijian, Tongan and Tahitian.

“My Pasifika family is very musical with big personalities,” Rokobaro says. “No one knew I could sing because I kept it private, the stakes were too high for me. I only sang in my bedroom or the backyard when no one else was home to hear me. I would perform in high heels in a full-on production that no one saw.”

Ten members of Rokobaro’s family will be in the audience for the show – safely distanced – in the Old Fitzroy Theatre.

“This will be full circle for me, to have the guts, aged 30, to sing for my family and the world, in these uncertain times, is incredible. I am so humbled and excited that they can be there.”

Rokobaro will be joined on stage by vocalist Nana Matapule, guest star Paulini Curuenavuli. Andrew Worboys is the musical director. Glenn Moorhouse accompanies on guitar.

Working with Curuenavuli will be a blast, Rokobaro says.

“I’ve looked up to Paulini all my life, we’re both Fijian. I’m hoping this show will bring light and passion and love to the audience watching at home.

“We all need a reminder that love during this time prevails and we can find love in every situation.”

At Last streams at 11.30am and 7.30pm AEST, June 24 at this link.
