Rolling out during the theatre lockdown, From our House to Yours will feature full-length performances, talks, previously unseen footage, podcasts, long-form articles and behind-the-scenes content.
In addition to a wide array of digital content available free on demand, every day from Wednesday to Sunday new content will be released on the Opera House website for people to enjoy in their isolation.
This week’s Digital Season highlights – available free on the Opera House website – include:
Spinifex Gum (October 23, 8pm AEST)
The premiere screening of Spinifex Gum – a song cycle recorded in the Concert Hall in 2019. The voices of Marliya Choir from Gondwana Choirs – young Indigenous women singing in English and Yindjibarndi – together with The Cat Empire’s Felix Riebl and special guests Emma Donovan, Peter Garrett and Briggs perform a powerful collaboration of voice, sound, movement and change, as musical snapshots of life in the Pilbara, north Western Australia.
60 Giant Steps (October 24, 8pm AEST)
Celebrating the 60th anniversary of John Coltrane’s revolutionary composition ‘Giant Steps’, Sydney’s own psychedelic jazz explorers GODTET will expand the original’s four minute blast of hyper-speed virtuosity into a 40 minute meditation on Coltrane’s creativity, spirituality, and how our perceptions of identity, time and place have changed in the face of 2020. A bespoke live-streamed performance commissioned exclusively for Sydney Opera House featuring specially created visuals by illustrator Christopher Cooper and animator Swicked.
Angie Who: A Little Song Workshop (October 25, 4pm AEST)
A musical experience for new parents and their little people, join singer-songwriter Angie Who for this fun workshop. Journey through a collection of old favourites plus hear some of Angie’s own originals from her new album I Love You The Most.
