SYDNEY CHAMBER OPERA
AUSTRALIA
AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

Presented by Sydney Chamber Opera and Carriageworks in association with Sydney Festival

Restoring the voice to one of the mightiest minds in history, O Mensch! transforms 21 remarkable poems by Friedrich Nietzsche into a series of inspired musical declarations by French composer Pascal Dusapin. In this virtuoso piece for baritone and piano, audiences are plunged into the agonies and the ecstasies of this era-defining genius, as fierce ideology collides with high emotion.

An intimate production directed by Sarah Giles and lit by lighting installation artist Katie Sfetkidis, O Mensch! features the indomitable baritone Mitchell Riley, who appeared in Sydney Chamber Opera’s ...pas à pas - nulle part... for the 2014 Sydney Festival.

Performed in German with English surtitles
Be sure to also see Sydney Chamber Opera in Dusapin’s Passion at City Recital Hall on 14 and 15 January.
