Melancholiac: The Music of Scott Walker
in co-presentation with the Music Gallery
Incubated at SummerWorks four years ago, this work finally receives its full premiere.
Melancholiac is an evening celebrating the music of maverick musician Scott Walker, from his teen idol years with the Walker Brothers to his introspective takes on Jacques Brel to his final album to his final album in collaboration with Sunn O))), Soused.
Bringing together the interpretive talents of Gregory Oh & Adam Paolozza, Melancholiac - part concert, part spectacle, part existential talk-show - will span Walker’s incredible career which came to a close with his passing earlier this year.
FULL CASTING ANNOUNCEMENT coming soon
Melancholiac was named one of the Torontoist's Top Ten Things they loved about SummerWorks, was also featured in NOW Magazine's post festival round-up and toured to the In The Soil arts festival in St. Catharines, ON
