La Soirée is thrilled to announce that cabaret darling Camille O'Sullivan will be returning to the little, red round stage this Christmas to perform in the show which catapulted her on her meteoric rise to stardom.
La Soirée and O'Sullivan's shared history goes back right to the start of the show's inception at the Edinburgh Festival 2004 when O'Sullivan was among the motley crew of troubadours and cabaret dreamers who set the Fringe on fire. In the eleven years since both O'Sullivan and La Soirée have toured the world, performing at iconic venues, picking up awards and critical acclaim along the way, but always with the spit and sawdust of the carnival world pumping through their veins. It is with a special brand of excitement that both return to the intimate, in-the-round setting of the Spiegeltent, to the venue where it all began, alongside many friends from the original 2004 show as well as new members of the dysfunctional family.
A potent cocktail of Irish charm and French smoulder, with looks to die for and 100% bombshell curves, Camille O’Sullivan is a real star. Her impassioned performances hark back to the era of the Weimar Republic, while her extraordinary voice is in a class all of its own. Drawn irresistibly to the dark side, she teases great depths of emotion out of songs by eclectic artists and once seen, she is never forgotten.
Previously an award-winning architect and portrait painter, Camille enjoys a formidable international reputation for her dramatic interpretations of the narrative songs of artists such as Nick Cave, Tom Waits, David Bowie and Radiohead. The award-winning singer has stunned audiences around the world with sell-out performances at Sydney Opera House, Royal Festival Hall and The Roundhouse. Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, Camille recently won the prestigious Helpmann Award for Best Performance for her sold-out 10 night run at the Sydney Festival and the Herald Angel Award for her solo performance in the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Rape of Lucrece at Edinburgh International Festival.
The crowned winner of this year’s prestigious Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and fresh from a magnificent world tour, the awe-inspiring cabaret sensation have returned home to London for a sixth season in the capital. La Soirée made their triumphant return to London on 27 October 2015, garnering five star reviews and audience acclaim, but the run at the deliciously decadent Spiegeltent at Southbank Centre must end on 17 January 2016.
