As one of the defining pop stars of our era, New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde makes her Opera House debut against the stunning backdrop of Sydney harbour.
Breaking out at an astonishing 16 years of age, Lorde has proved one of the defining pop stars of her generation – David Bowie even declared her the future of music. Her warmth, clarity and raw insight has connected with millions searching for their place in the world. Her new album Melodrama turns the suburban shadows and teenage intimacies of her debut Pure Heroine into a sky-scraping neon. It unfolds a single story of one night at a house party through the magnetic, complex pop that made her a global phenomenon – from international breakthrough anthem ‘Royals’ to her electrifying return with ‘Green Light’ this year.
Australian singer-songwriter George Maple will be supporting Lorde for both Opera House performances. Her seductive, yearning vocals and introspective lyrics blend smoothly with downtempo R&B-influenced grooves and light dance beats.
