Sirius is a production of The Capital, Bendigo, with the support of Bendigo TAFE.
Nicholas Isherwood appears thanks to BIFEM donor Mr Glyn Cryer.
The Australian premiere of Sirius provides a rare chance for audiences to experience a work described by Stockhausen biographer Michael Kurtz as ‘a modern mystery play, clothed as a science fiction story’. This strange, lyrical universe created by the twentieth-century compositional icon features the Australian début of sensational soprano Tiffany Du Mouchelle and bass-baritone Nicholas Isherwood, whose peerless interpretative authority on the work stems from a 23-year collaboration with Stockhausen. Clarinettist Richard Haynes makes a welcome return to Australia in his BIFEM début, alongside Stockhausen champion and BIFEM Associate Artist, Tristram Williams.
