Hazel O’Connor & Breaking Glass
The Film + Q&A and Special Live Performance
Wednesday 14 November 7.00pm
PLEASE NOTE Breaking Glass is rated for ages 15 and above and the event starts at 7pm.
A very special evening with award-winning singer songwriter Hazel O’Connor, featuring a rare screening of the digitally re-mastered uncut version of the film followed by an intimate Q&A and live performance of some of the films best loved songs.
Striding into the spotlight and catapulted into fame in 1980 in the iconic movie Breaking Glass, Hazel not only made her lead role her own, but also wrote all the songs. The soundtrack album Breaking Glass went double platinum during its 38-week chart run, defining Hazel O’Connor as a powerful passionate performer and a force to be reckoned with. Joined here onstage by Clare Hirst on saxophone (Bellestars, Communards, David Bowie), Sarah Fisher on keyboards (Eurythmics) and Josh Blackmore (Troyka/Strobes) on percussion, the superb blend of the three voices and stunning musicianship add a sweet touch of class to their vibrant performance.
Live onstage, her unforgettable songs from the film including Eighth Day, Will You, Big Brother, Decadent Days, If Only and more, seem even more relevant in our present times. With a special Meet & Greet immediately after the show you’re in for a treat.
‘They were absolutely fantastic, bringing the entire audience roaring to its feet.’ Daily Telegraph
