Breaking Glass

Date: 4 Feb 2020

Created as a quadruple bill of new one-act operas from Sydney Chamber Opera, Breaking Glass sees composers Peggy Polias, Josephine Macken, Bree van Reyk and Georgia Scott 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.

Originally slated for public performance at Carriageworks prior to the coronavirus shutdown, the production was recorded and subsequently edited for streaming presentation.
