This Christmas, all you need is love — plus a festive little cabaret that showcases all of the hit tunes from Love Actually. It's the way to celebrate the season when you're not just leaving the seasonal favourite flick on repeat at home. Yep, that's Christmas Actually.

Created by the folks behind Rumour Has It and Lady Beatle, and starring Libby O'Donovan, Christmas Actually features all of the tracks that've become synonymous with this merry time of year — including Mariah Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas Is You', naturally.

Songs by Joni Mitchell, Norah Jones, Eva Cassidy, The Beach Boys and The Beatles are all on the bill as well — and, to help belt them out, O'Donovan will be joined by Joshua Robson, Stefanie Caccamo, Mat Verevis, Damian Sim, Scott French and more.

There'll even be more than one nativity lobster, plus a jolly mood and a whole room full of festive cheer. That room is The Studio at Sydney Opera House, where Christmas Actually plays from Wednesday, December 14–Saturday, December 17.

Get excited by revisiting Love Actually's trailer below. 'Tis the season, after all.
