SYDNEY CHAMBER OPERA PRESENTS
Internationally acclaimed soprano Jane Sheldon and Belvoir’s new resident director Adena Jacobs join forces to create a transcendentally haunting monodrama,Exil. Contemporary Georgian composer Giya Kancheli originally conceived his 1994 song cycle as a concert work, not for the stage.
A setting of Biblical Psalms alongside post-Holocaust poetry by Paul Celan and Hans Sahl, it is an abstract twentieth-century drama of the soul in the face of unspeakable horror.
