After having joined forces once again for a pair of special performance with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra earlier this year, Nick Cave and Warren Ellis are returning to perform their film soundtracks at the Sydney Opera House.
The past decade and a half have seen the two collaborate on some widely celebrated scores and soundtracks, such as 2005’s The Proposition, 2007’s The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, 2009’s The Road and 2016’s Hell or High Water.
“Very often a tension can happen between music and picture that is about chance and a kind of unknowingness that can be really amazing,” said Cave in a statement.
“Just by putting together two things that were created in isolation, music and film, suddenly something quite magical can happen.”
The shows will be performed with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, and they’ll play three shows at the iconic venue.
