Event Details

Deep underground, something is stirring. Ideas are spreading and change is beckoning. The Captives have a choice - embrace the terrifying uncertainly of change or maintain the status quo. Captives of the City is a dynamic fusion of digital puppetry, live animation, music and performance, a new chamber opera that tackles fundamental questions of our time. Captives of the City is a collaboration between independent company Lemony S Puppet Theatre and Chamber Made Opera and will be performed in a secret location in the depths of Arts Centre Melbourne.

Your experience begins at Curve Bar 15 mins before performance start time. Late arrivals cannot be admitted. This event is a travelling performance taking place in elevators, backstage and other unusual locations. You will be required to climb 8 steps to access the main performance area. Please contact the Access Manager at the Arts Centre Melbourne on 9281 8503 if you require further information.
