In partnership with The Abbey Theatre, Bealtaine Festival presents LOVE SONG Part I: Communities of Dissent - Silver Stars and beyond.
With a choir of performers and guest singers, accompanied by musicians onstage, Seán Millar will perform and contextualise a curated song cycle of pieces from his decades-long engagement with communities going through profound change.
The performance includes works from the seminal Silver Stars right up to Millar’s most recent orchestral work Sometimes The Signal Jumps. It will also include members of the original cast of Silver Stars and performances from Miriam Ingram, Neil Watkins, Martin McCann, Gillian O’Connor, Ray Corcoran, Pom Boyd, Tommy Coombes and Liam Burke, alongside musicians Etaoin Gray and Zoe Ní Riordáin.
Part of a two-year commission for Bealtaine Festival, which will end with Millar’s new theatre work Lovesong Part 2 for the Festival in 2023.
