Paul Kelly & Camille O'Sullivan with Feargal Murray
Director: Chris Drummond
World Premier

The words of great Irish poets are given new breath in this premiere collaboration between two inimitable artists.

The poetry of W. B. Yeats and his countrymen has an inherent musicality and this quality shines through in Paul Kelly, Camille O’Sullivan and Feargal Murray’s song-cycle Ancient Rain. Original compositions by these contemporary masters have been shaped around the words of more than a century of Irish poetry, and as Kelly and O’Sullivan incarnate a succession of diverse characters, a conduit across oceans and time is opened.

Kelly’s ingeniously understated yet evocative lyricism and O’Sullivan’s majestic vocal command unite here in the service of stories of love, loss and redemption.
