It’s the 1970s and Fereydoun Farrokhzad’s star is blazing bright – he’s a sex symbol and chart-topping pop singer – imagine an Iranian Tom Jones. A decade on and he’s living in political exile in Germany, though still performing to sold-out audiences in Europe.
On 7 August 1992, he’s found brutally murdered. The neighbours said his dogs had been barking for two nights.
Take a dive down the rabbit hole of Wikipedia and murder mystery podcasts.
Performed by Javaad Alipoor and Asha Reid with live music from Me-Lee Hay and Raam Emani (King Raam), Iranian musician and global podcast sensation.
Audience will need to connect to Sydney Opera House wifi as part of the show.
