Event Details

The Call of Aurora: a story of love, death & madness is a chamber opera by Tasmanian composer & librettist, JOE BUGDEN.

In December 1913, after two years stranded in Antarctica, Douglas Mawson boarded The Aurora, to travel back to Tasmania.

Exactly 100 years later - to the month - The Call of Aurora will premier in Hobart.

Based on Douglas Mawson's 1911-1914 expedition to Antarctica, the crux of the story took place 100 years ago this year, when, stranded along with Mawson and part of his crew, to endure the eternal darkness of the Antarctic Winter, wireless operator Sydney Jeffreys goes mad, believing himself to be Jesus Christ.

The Call of Aurora investigates Mawson’s relationship with Jeffreys, and considers how History can shine its eternal light on some people, whilst casting others into the shadows of obscurity and anonymity.

Featuring:

PHILLIP JOUGHIN as Douglas Mawson

JAMIE SCOTT as Sydney Jeffreys (the mad wireless operator)

JENNIFER O'HALLORAN as Paquita Delprat (Mawson’s fiancée)

NICK MONK as the Ghost of Robert Falcon Scott
