My Heart So Grieves

Event Date: 28/01/2018, 02:30 pm

The Independent Theatre presents Prelude in Tea The Marais Project and Elysian Fields
Early music specialists, The Marais Project and electric viola da gamba ensemble Elysian Fields return to
North Sydney’s Independent Theatre to present a delicious one-off program titled, “My Heart So Grieves”.
Directed - as ever - by the versatile Jenny Eriksson, the innovative program features music inspired by poets of the 16th century.
It is the first 2018 concert in the theatre’s popular Prelude in Tea chamber music series
which includes afternoon tea with refreshments and a mouth-watering array of cakes and fruits.

The first half of the concert showcases The Marais Project – Dutch-born tenor Koen van Stade, lutenist Tommie Andersson and Jenny Eriksson
on viola da gamba - performing songs of love and loss from the Elizabethan era, including work by the incomparable John Dowland.
Singer van Stade features on The Marais Project’s most recent CD, “Spinning Forth” which has garnered rave reviews.

After interval, Elysian Fields will play music including pianist/composer Matt McMahon’s gorgeous song-cycle,
“What Should I Say”, settings of poems by Thomas Wyatt, courtier to King Henry VIII.

Elysian Fields features some of Australia’s finest jazz musicians and composers including Matt Keegan, saxophones and Matt McMahon, piano. Joining them and Eriksson is legendary bassist Jonathan Zwartz, singer Susie Bishop and drummer Finn Ryan.
John Shand, the Walkley-winning SMH reviewer, wrote of the world premiere of Matt McMahon’s song cycle:
“Here was an enthralling dialogue between past and present. McMahon has preserved Wyatt's prevailing mood of courtly gentleness,
but spiced it harmonically and texturally…The songs were exquisitely sung by Susie Bishop.”

Directed by rising star of Sydney theatre Rachel Chant Intersection 2018: Chrysalis features an exceptional cast of young actors, creating a compelling, complex mosaic of modern life for young Australians.

Little Triangle will present Merrily We Roll Along
After debuting with critically acclaimed sell-out production of Sunday in the Park with George, Little Triangle will present Merrily We Roll Along with emerging Australian performers this coming March for a limited 3-week season as part of The Depot Theatre's 2018 line-up.

"It's our time, breathe it in; worlds to change and worlds to win"

Franklin Shepard, a successful songwriter and movie producer in his late thirties, reviews his life, both professional and personal, especially his relationships with his best friends, Mary Flynn and Charley Kringas (his song-writing collaborator), and his two wives, Beth and Gussie. The action moves backward in time from 1976 to 1957, from the disappointments of adulthood, to the hopeful idealism of youth.
