Renaissance polymath Gerolamo Cardano is one of the most influential thinkers of all time. Not only the inventor of algebra, he was also a surgeon, gambler, philosopher, astrologer and heretic. Sydney Chamber Opera’s world premiere sees Cardano, played by Mitchell Butel, telling the story of his incredible life. With Renaissance-inspired music by composer Mary Finsterer, libretto by Tom Wright and direction by Janice Muller, Biographica thrums with the energy of an age where science, thought and discovery were expanding - and is infused with the extraordinary humanity and wit of a true genius.
Sydney Chamber Opera have been creating intense, moving, brilliant opera – breathing new life into the art form – since 2010. Their past shows have touched on everything from Australians in WWI to outrageous Russian futurist sci-fi, and all have been rapturously received. Joined by Ensemble Offspring musicians, and conducted by Jack Symonds, this electrifying premiere is startlingly original, fresh and fascinating.
Performers: Mitchell Butel, Jane Sheldon, Simon Lobelson, Andrew Goodwin, Anna Fraser, Jessica O’Donoghue with musicians from Ensemble Offspring.
