His Music Burns

Presented by the Sydney Festival

A staged double bill

… pas à pas- nulle part… by György Kurtág
Into the Little Hill by George Benjamin

Australian premieres

Appearing for the first time in the Sydney Festival, Sydney Chamber Opera is joined by Sydney Theatre Company resident director Sarah Giles to present a double bill of contemporary masterpieces.

György Kurtág’s musical meditation on a series of absurdist poems by Samuel Beckett, … pas à pas – nulle part …, transforms a single virtuosic performer into a whirlwind of energy.

Renowned playwright Martin Crimp warps the Pied Piper legend into a dark political tragedy, as George Benjamin’s dangerously beautiful score for Into the Little Hill lures the audience into a maze of sound and story.
