A double bill of Leoš Janáček's Diary of One Who Disappeared and world premiere of Huw Belling's Fumeblind Oracle.

Written in the aftermath of World War I, Czech composer Leoš Janáček's Diary of One Who Disappeared is a lacerating song cycle of delusion and illicit desire centred on a man who would abandon everything for forbidden love. Troubling and sensual, it has never been staged in Australia – until now.

And there's more. In response to Janáček's masterpiece, SCO's Huw Belling (Victory Over the Sun) spins out the tale, taking it new and dangerous depths in the world premiere of Fumeblind Oracle, a partner piece in which the lone woman moves from love poetry to god-guided violence. 

Inspired by Sappho and Homer's Iliad, a new libretto by Pierce Wilcox (Oscar & Lucinda) breaks expectation to pieces and builds a real, breathing person from the shards while director Alexander Berlage, acclaimed for American Psycho and Cry-Baby applies his electric visual style to this remarkable diptych.
