'MYTH' will premiere at the Sydney Opera House next month

George Maple has announced her return today (November 9) with the announcement of her forthcoming second album, ‘MYTH’.

In a statement on social media, Maple revealed that the album would also be accompanied by a “live performance film” that will premiere at the Sydney Opera House next month.

“The story follows the intense joy and heartbreak of Luna and Sol, two star crossed lovers born into a genetically engineered society ‘The New Monarchy’,” Maple said of the film.

“I like to think of ‘MYTH’ as an Anti-Voyeuristic experience, where the audience is drawn into the intricacies of the production itself. They become a part of the story, sharing the sweat, blood and tears, felt by every performer on stage.”

Today is probably the most nerve racking and exciting day of my life. I actually can’t believe I’m typing this. I’m so proud to announce MYTH, my second body of work. The global premiere screening of MYTH will take place in the Joan Sutherland Theatre at @sydneyoperahouse Sydney Opera House on December 9, 2020 starring myself and ultimate babe @iblamejordan The first single “Fade” taken from MYTH being is premiered this evening on @triple_j goodnights. MYTH is a new album / live performance film. The story follows the intense joy and heartbreak of Luna and Sol, two star crossed lovers born into a genetically engineered society “The New Monarchy.” I like to think of MYTH as an Anti-Voyeuristic experience, where the audience is drawn into the intricacies of the production itself. They become a part of the story, sharing the sweat, blood and tears, felt by every performer on stage. In this age where we are starved for human connection, it was my hope that I could give you something real, honest and unadulterated. It’s a little terrifying for me to feel so exposed but I guess this is my epic and tragic love story… I will be revealing elements of the story and the music over the next 3 weeks prior to the screening. Tickets are ON SALE NOW via the box office at @sydneyoperahouse and I would love to see you all there. Link for tickets in my bio For those of you internationally or in other states….watch this space.
