Event Details

Vladimir Mayakovsky: poet, lover, revolutionary. Innovative Australian composer Michael Smetanin joins forces with award-winning writer and librettist Alison Croggon to tell the incendiary story of Stalin’s favourite poet.

Mayakovsky blends Russian Futurism with hypermodern electronica in a dizzying ride through the 20th century. Its epic canvas is populated by a parade of figures: lovers, apparatchiks, writers, radicals, and Uncle Joe Stalin himself. It begins with a voice from the future and ends in cataclysm. It is fierce, uncompromising, and strangely beautiful.

Sydney Chamber Opera’s world premiere production brings the pulsing energies of rebellion to the Carriageworks stage

Conductor Jack Symonds, director Kat Henry, set & costume Hanna Sandgren, lighting design Guy Harding, AV design Davros

With Simon Lobelson, Jessica O'Donoghue, Sarah Toth, Lotte Betts-Dean, Mitchell Riley, Daniel Todd
