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.

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 Papenheim, and The Gloaming's Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh as they create enchanting musical landscapes for the incomparable writing found in novels like Watt and The Unnamable and the short story "First Love."
