Far and Away productions and Brink Productions, Australia
Ancient Rain | The Olympia Theatre | Sept 29 2016


Magnetic Irish chanteuse, Camille O’Sullivan, and iconic Australian singer-songwriter, Paul Kelly, perform in this evocative new music theatre work. They are joined by O’Sullivan’s long-time collaborator, songwriter, and pianist, Feargal Murray.
 
Inspired by the works of W.B. Yeats and other great Irish poets, Ancient Rain combines the spoken word with a song-cycle of new compositions. Kelly and O’Sullivan, both mesmerising performer, inhabit a range of diverse characters as they reveal a tapestry of themes, from the cost of love and the price of independence to the indequacy of faith and the power of forgiveness.
 
Ancient Rain sees O’Sullivan’s majestic vocal command unite with Kelly’s understated yet evocative lyricism here in the service of stories of love, loss and redemption.
