Here All Night


“If it’s possible to imagine an uplifting evening of Samuel Beckett, this was it: a few playful selections from the author’s prose, set to a thrilling musical score, all framed around a hypnotic installation by the Irish sculptor Brian O’Doherty.”

— The Telegraph (London)

A hypnotic journey into the musical mind of Samuel Beckett.

The prose and music of Samuel Beckett’s writing find new life and a fresh resonance in this stunning new theatrical work for soprano, actor and chamber orchestra. Arriving from Ireland as part of a year-long celebration of the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising, Here All Night brings back the players of Gare St Lazare Ireland, who wowed Boston audiences with their productions of Waiting for Godot and Moby Dick at ArtsEmerson. The group is among the world’s foremost interpreters of Beckett’s work and this Boston Premiere an absolute must-see. Folk and high art weave together with exquisite results in the hands of actor Conor Lovett, composer Paul Clark, soprano Melanie Pappenheim and Cleek Schrey as they create enchanting musical landscapes for the incomparable writing found in novels like Watt and The Unnamable and the short story “First Love.”
