Nooks & Crannies: Conor Oberst

Inside the Scenery Dock

Teresa Tan
Sydney Opera House

Following his intimate and career-spanning performance in the Concert Hall in February 2017, Sydney Opera House and its Major Partner Intel present a unique take of Tachycardia by singer-songwriter Conor Oberst.

Hidden within the heart of the building, the bustling Scenery Dock evolves on a daily basis and is the beating heart of the Joan Sutherland Theatre, home to our resident companies Opera Australia and The Australian Ballet. Written during the solitude of an Omaha winter Tachycardia ruminates over the trials and tribulations of life. Aptly, Conor Oberst performs the song with multi-instrumentalist and friend Miwi La Lupa amongst the larger than life sets, scenery and props of 19th century Paris from Opera Australia’s La Traviata, designed by Michael Yeargan.

Nooks & Crannies is a creative collaboration between  Sydney Opera House and Major Partner Intel that brings the spaces, people, and experiences from inside the Sydney Opera House outside. The series has so far featured José González, Poliça, Glen Hansard and Hiatus Kaiyote.
