7 Star Arts’ Susan Porrett in ‘The Slaves of Solitude’ at Hampstead Theatre

Our wonderful friend and actress Susan Porrett, creator of our acclaimed multi-genre productions Classic Gershwin, Divine Fire, Sweet Harmony and Chekhov’s Grand Piano, will be appearing at Hampstead Theatre in ‘The Slaves of Solitude’, a play by Nicholas Wright adapted from a novel by Patrick Hamilton, which weaves a fascinating blend of dark hilarity and melancholy in a story about an improbable heroine in wartime Britain. Directed by Jonathan Kent, the play runs from October 20th to November 25th 2017. Details here

This winter Susan appears in two 7 Star Arts concerts – ‘Russian Winter Concert’ with Alena Lugovkina (flute) and Anne Denholm (harp) at Dorich House, Kingston on 7th December and our much-loved ‘Classic Gershwin’ with Viv McLean (piano) in the Jazz Room at the Bulls Head on 21st December.

A remarkably gifted artist – Gramophone

Anthony Hewitt is regarded as one of Britain’s most gifted pianists, and, since winning the prestigious William Kapell Competition in Washington D.C., has enjoyed a prolific performing career spanning two decades, including concerto appearances with the National Symphony Orchestra in the U.S.A., and the English Chamber Orchestra at London’s Royal Festival Hall. He has given eight recitals at Wigmore Hall and received critical acclaim for recordings on Naxos, Divine Art, and Champs Hill Records, and recently recorded for Decca.

He enjoys a diverse musical life as festival director, professor of piano at Birmingham Conservatoire, and chamber musician; the latest CD of his trio (Dimension Piano Trio), was described in The Sunday Times as “played with a rare richness and depth”.

The Story of Cabaret in Music & Words

Elena dtm Lorenzi – vocals

Journey into the world of Cabaret – from Parisian Bistros to the decadent clubs of 1930s Berlin. Elena dtm Lorenzi and Stefano Marzanni bring to life songs made famous by Edith Piaf and Dalida, from the satire of Mischa Spoliansky to the revolutionary spirit of Kurt Weill and the dynamic French chansons of Léo Ferré.

Tickets £18 each

**Please note this is a very small venue and early booking is recommended**

“Those smokey, stylish Parisian jazz clubs and edgy pre-war Berlin cabarets…..truly come to life again in Classic Cabaret” (audience member at debut show)

“atmospheric, stirring and deeply moving” (audience member)

Much more than a concert of cabaret songs, Elena Lorenzi, described at her last concert in the Jazz Room at the Bulls Head, as “a star in the making“, accompanied by Stefano Marzanni, is not only a great singer and performer, she is also passionate about the history of cabaret, and is dedicated to telling the real story – from lyrical romance and love to dark biting satire, politics and existentialist reflections on the meaning of life
