The Song Company: Close-up – Dry My Tears

The Song Company presents Close-up – Dry My Tears at Pier 2/3.

 

Legendary Australian performer Paul Capsis makes his debut with The Song Company in this incredibly intimate and moving recital co-curated with Associate Artistic Director Francis Greep.

Paul Capsis leaves microphones and costumes behind in his first ever solo acoustic performance.

Join Paul on this gritty musical journey that begins in the streets of 1930’s Berlin with the music of Kurt Weill (The Threepenny Opera) and John Kander (Cabaret).

Influences of Marianne Faithfull, Jimmy Scott and Nina Simone will break your heart in music by Richard Rogers, Elton John and Billie Joel, before your tears are dried and you can smile once more in jazz and ragtime songs by Melody Gardot and Johnny Mercer.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see this icon of the Australian stage Close-Up and unplugged in this intimate and moving recital with The Song Company’s Francis Greep on piano.

 

Please note: this is not an Australian Chamber Orchestra event or performance.
