Circus, opera and classical music embrace in this powerful new concert experience

Composed and created by Australian composer Chloé Charody, Stories That Must Be Heard helps to tell two profound stories.
In recent years, Chloé Charody has spent time helping refugees across the globe, and has learnt about the horrors of war that caused them to flee and the unjust treatment many have received at the hands of the governments they have turned to for sanctuary.

Stories That Must Be Heard will feature a new violin sonata written for the unique acrobatic skill set of violin virtuoso Sonja Schebeck and acrobat Josh Frazer, set at Melbourne Park Hotel in 2021 when many refugees were detained indefinitely and a new song cycle composed by Chloé Charody based on the poetry collection of Iranian poet and Manus Prison survivor, Mohammad Ali Maleki.

Tickets $26 – $45
