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. Presented by Carriageworks and Sydney Chamber Opera.
