In a quadruple bill of new one-act operas from provocative company Sydney Chamber Opera, four brilliant composers seize the stage and share the stories they have always wanted to tell.

The Tent creates a landscape of pulsating terror from Margaret Atwood’s knife-sharp prose.

Her Dark Marauder sees Sylvia Plath’s poetry inspire a woman’s battle for her identity.

Commute transforms the saga of Odysseus into the prickling unease of a modern woman’s walk home at night.

The Invisible Bird takes the true story of an endangered Australian parrot and renders it a dazzling journey to emancipation.

With works that open an expanse of possibilities in the form, Breaking Glass is a new future for opera.


Composers: Peggy Polias, Josephine Macken, Bree van Reyk & Georgia Scott

Presented in partnership with the Sydney Conservatorium of Music’s Composing Women Program.
