Eileen

Concert or Performance

15 Nov 2018 to 18 Nov 2018

An exciting early 20th Century musical from a prodigious maestro, Eileen is Victor Herbert’s grand Irish ode to his maternal homeland.

On the eve of Irish revolution, patriot Barry O’Day meets the winsome Eileen in France and falls in love. Torn between passion and duty, his sire land pulls his heart and he leaves, unsure if he’ll ever see her again.

Years later Barry journeys to his home in Sligo Bay ready to lead the rebellion against British occupation with the help of sympathetic English aristocrat, Lady Maude, the current owner of the O’Day lands. Imagine his surprise when Eileen turns out to be Lady Maude’s niece! Love rekindles, but with danger all around will their romance survive?

Directed by versatile auteur Suzanne Barton, with musical direction from multi-award nominee Kent Ross, and featuring authentic Irish dance choreography by Catherine Cosgriff with championship dancers from the Cosgriff Irish Dancing School, this rousing and romantic musical adventure is making its Australian premiere at the Kel Watson Theatre, Burwood East, following a successful 2017 season in New York.

With captivating characters and a joyful score, be swept away on a grand lyrical adventure.
