I don’t usually post links to Youtube, but seeing as I work at The Sydney Opera House I thought you might like to see a little glimpse backstage and the creative things the people I work with get up to.
Here is a little Blurb from our CEO Richard Evans:
The Ship Song is a unique interpretation of Nick Cave’s classic song, sung and played by some of the artists and companies that make Sydney Opera House renowned around the world.
The Ship Song features vocals by Neil Finn, Kev Carmody, Sarah Blasko, Angus and Julia Stone, Paul Kelly, Temper Trap, Martha Wainwright, Katie Noonan, Teddy Tahu Rhodes and Daniel Johns. The singers are joined by the Sydney Symphony, Opera Australia, The Australian Ballet, Bangarra Dance Theatre, Bell Shakespeare Company and the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
The Ship Song’s aim is to give people everywhere the opportunity to experience the creative genius that makes this place tick, to get a taste of the artists, venues and other spaces that power the heart of this great building.
The Ship Song is designed to be shared. So send it to your friends, watch it with your families, share it with everyone you know.
Love it, such a creative place to work!
