    Celtic Connections: A New International

  • When
    27 January 19:30 - 21:30
    Organized by:
  • A New International, in association with the Glad Café and Vanishing Point Theatre Company, are proud to present “A Night at the Theatre”: a concert in two halves featuring the world premiere of a new collection of songs by A New International for a forthcoming theatrical production by Vanishing Point, scheduled for a national tour in Spring 2019. Inspired by classic songwriters of musical theatre such as Kurt Weill and Lionel Bart, by Weimar-era cabaret, classic chanson and on through popular west-end showtunes, these songs find themselves in a musical space somewhere in between Leonard Cohen and The Muppets.
    This special performance will see A New International create a dramatic, lyrical evening of song, at times bawdy, anarchic, satirical and melancholy, yet with a strong sense of melodicism throughout as jolly showtunes, tragic ballads and bonkers bacchanalia are all belted out to the backdrop of a band as haunted cabaret act and the soundtrack to a darkly comic opera.
