Songs From The Swans At Coole (Draiocht)

June 16, 2015 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 pm

This new cycle of songs featuring the poetry of WB Yeats has been composed by Michael Scott to mark Yeats 150th Birthday in 2015. Focusing on Yeats unrequited love for Maude Gonne and the development of the Irish state, poems featured include ‘Innisfree’, ‘Sailing to Byzantium’, ‘When you are old’, ‘The Sorrow of Love’ and ‘No Second Troy’.

Soprano Kathleen Tynan and Tenor Anthony Norton will be joined by a traditional Irish Orchestra, consisting of Irish harp, whistle, percussion, fiddle, cello, French horn, concertina, pianoforte and keyboards, as well as special guests Deirdre Donnelly and Des Cave to read a selection of poems.
Independent theatre director and producer Michael Scott has been writing music for the theatre since 1984 and he has a particular passion for the work of William Butler Yeats.
