The results of a four-year development process by The opera Project, THE RAMEAU PROJECT is a sprawling, multi-layered music theatre work for nine performers, featuring Kellaway's "re-imaginings" of the music of Jean-Philippe Rameau (1683-1764).

Reveling in the sometime grandeur, delicacy, complexity and underlying wit of the French Baroque, it employs seductive improvisations on a complex layering of sophisticated deceits. Presented by Performance Space at CarrriageWorks, Sydney, August 2009.

“The Rameau Project confirms Kellaway’s esoteric vision—musically scholarly, literary, in love with the cut and paste of building idiosyncratic works out of others’ classics … a modus operandi which faces the inevitability of likewise becoming itself ‘classical’.” - Keith Gallasch, Realtime Magazine
