The Colours of Jazz: NOW – FINAL TICKETS!

July 23, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Sydney Opera House

Journey through the vibrant colours of jazz with us, from textural sonic exploration, high energy grooves and exhilarating spontaneous dialogue, through to evocative meditations on melody & rhythm.


Trichromy “Colour Therapy”
Novak Manojlovic “PLACES, PEOPLE”

“Music into which you could sink as if it were a soft leather armchair… conjured images before your eyes”

– John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald.

Within the stunning Utzon Room, two new world premieres from Paul Cutlan and Novak Manojlovic reveal the expansive nature and colour of jazz today, and alludes to the possibilities of where it could take you.

Trichromy explores the beauty, emotion and freedom within music with a brand-new suite COLOUR THERAPY. Commissioned by SIMA this transportive work traverses layered soundworlds, leading the listener through a meditation on an intricate and varied colour mosaic.

A deep dive into chamber and film music, PLACES, PEOPLE is a collection of works that seek to consecrate memory into song. The ensemble will present the record in full – a contemporary, genre-spanning performance – as the official launch of the 2021 ABC Music release.
