Music, Cabaret & Nightlife, Storytelling

Digital Fringe

Join Emma Knights, as she embodies a woodland nymph, on an otherworldly journey using myths, legends and fantasy to look at the realities of life. This set of songs explores mental health, equality and femininity and includes audience favourites, “Equality & Chivalry”, “The Absence of Your Voice” and “If The Gods Were On Tinder.”

“Hauntingly beautiful” – Taylor Kendal, Theatre Travels

“Myths, Legends and Fantasy, is quite unlike most cabaret.” – Steve Davis, The Adelaide Show

“A whimsical exploration through time that is most unexpected as you frolic through these stories with her.” – Karyn (audience member)


Emma Knights holds her first class Honours in Bachelor of Popular Music as well as her Advanced Diploma in Classical Piano Performance and is a graduate of both Elder Conservatorium and the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts. She has toured professionally with Opera Queensland and internationally with Vintage Vendetta, Melanie Gall and her own shows. She has been an invited accompanist for conferences with the International Congress of Vocal Teachers and the Australian National Association of Teachers of Singing.

Emma’s production company, Emma Knights Productions was founded in 2013 with the goal to create paid opportunities for South Australian talents and to inspire locals to support local. The tourism-accredited company produces a range of award-winning music-based events across the year including Sconefest!, Immersive Pirates of Penzance, Immersive Oklahoma! and A Brunch of Songs. Emma has won many theatre & business awards, and was a panellist for the 2022 Tourism Industry Council’s The Art of Tourism.

Emma has performed in many Adelaide Fringes and curated/managed venues such as LIVE on 5 at the Adelaide Oval. In 2018, she premiered her own one-woman show The Piano Men at the Edinburgh Fringe. The show went on to be performed in Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth and in the Pianodrome in Edinburgh Fringe. She debuted The Piano Women in Edinburgh Fringe in 2019 which was reviewed in the International Piano Magazine and her article “Becoming a Piano Woman” was published in the International Alliance of Women in Music biannual journal. In 2020, she released her debut album Anticipate and her original music cabaret, Myths, Legends and Fantasy debuted in 2021 Adelaide Fringe to a sell-out crowd.
