The Production
In February 2011, an ambitious new company presented their inaugural production – the world premiere of an aggressive, passionate and brand new adaptation of Dostoyevsky’s existential novella.

Notes from Underground is led by three singers – bass-baritone Simon Lobelson, tenor Brenton Spiteri & soprano Jane Sheldon – and the characters of Simonov, Zverkov, Ferfichkin & Trudolyubov will be played by actors. One actor will also double as The Officer, who appears in one scene separately to the other four characters. These actors play critical roles within the work, and will be required for a minimum of six rehearsals in addition to tech rehearsals and performances.

The Company
Newly resident at Carriageworks, Sydney Chamber Opera is a fresh and youthful answer to some of the difficult questions facing today’s opera industry. Louis Garrick and Jack Symonds established SCO in 2010 and it has rapidly developed into an important and distinctive voice in the Australian music and theatre landscapes.
SCO is critically acclaimed for its innovative programming, musical rigour and strong focus on compelling theatre-making. At SCO we make opera with a 21st-century outlook that resonates with a new, younger audience, and that shows how vibrant and relevant the artform can be.
Each year we stage two to three productions of 20th and 21st-century repertoire. Our program is a balance of specially commissioned work by leading homegrown composers, the latest international operas in their Australian premieres, song cycles and cantatas in unusual stagings, and canonical repertoire reinvigorated by the country’s most daring theatrical talent.
