Love Song to Opera House

New Zealanders musician Neil Finn and opera star Teddy Tahu Rhodes have been included in a line-up of artists chosen to perform sections of Nick Cave’s classic The Ship’s Song for a Sydney Opera House advertisement. It’s a love song to the building, really. “Come sail your ships around me/And burn your bridges down/We make a little history baby/Every time you come around.” Sydney Opera House director of marketing and communications Victoria Doidge said: “The calibre of the artists who volunteered in this project is testament to the House’s special place in our national psyche.” Other artists included are: Kev Carmody and the Australian Ballet, Sarah Blasko, John Bell, Angus and Julia Stone and Paul Kelly.
