Opera House Opus

“Come sail your ships around me/and let your Fat Lady sing”?

Not quite. But today the Sydney Opera House is releasing a special video in which Neil Finn, Kev Carmody, Sarah Blasko, Angus and Julia Stone, Paul Kelly, Temper Trap, Martha Wainwright, Daniel Johns and other pop stars sing bits of Nick Cave’s Ship Song, backed by the Sydney Symphony, Opera Australia, Australian Chamber Orchestra, Bangarra Dance Theatre and Bell Shakespeare.
