Elizabeth Street Hyde Park, Sydney, NSW, 2000, Australia
17th January 2019 to 18th January 2019
One of the most gifted interpreters of song in Australia, Paul Capsis deploys his vocal blowtorch to light up rock music’s dark side, featuring songs by artists including Patti Smith, Tom Waits, Lou Reed, Lana Del Rey and The Doors, and classics made famous by Janis Joplin, Nina Simone and Led Zeppelin. Backed by a high-octane live band led by Jethro Woodward, this is Capsis at his most raw and rock. One of Australia’s most versatile performers, he’s worked with most of the leading Australian theatre companies, as well as in Vienna, Hong Kong, London, Edinburgh and New York. With a musical background as varied as his acting career, Capsis has sung with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the Soweto Gospel Choir of South Africa, Judi Connelli, Russell Crowe and Marcia Hines.
