Arena, accompanied by her orchestra, played in front of seven sold-out audiences at Arts Centre Melbourne's Hamer Hall and Sydney Opera House early this year. She will return to each city (Hamer Hall on February 12 and Sydney's State Theatre on February 26) for two encore performances. The final Hamer Hall show from her first run of shows was filmed for her Symphony of Life DVD, out 23 November.
These days, Arena resides in France with her family, where she has had notable success from her The Mask Of Zorro duet with Marc Anthony, 'I Want To Spend My Lifetime Loving You', which was certified 3x Platinum, as well as landing another two top 10 singles - an impressive feat in the usually insular music scene in France.
ARIA Award winner Anthony Callea will join Arena as a special guest for these performances. Tickets go on sale on sale 30 November through Ticketmaster.
