Sinatra, Sequins & Swing: The Capitol Years Live!
With a special appearance from: Isabella Bliss.
Friday 31st July from 8pm
Endorsed by the Sinatra family’s Europe representative, the spectacular-sounding, visually-evocative Sinatra musical like no other celebrates the iconic hits, vocal majesty & Hollywood glamour of Sinatra’s sensational Capitol Records years of 1953-1961.
It’s 1961 and Sinatra is here to share the magic moments of his Capitol years in a one-off spectacular concert evening. Backed by the Capitol Orchestra, he’ll re-live classics like Chicago, Lady Is a Tramp, Come Fly with Me, It Happened in Monterey, Brazil, I’ve Got You under My Skin and many more, and revisit key song-scenes from some of his legendary movie & TV specials. Alongside, enjoy songs from Capitol Records stablemates, Peggy “Fever” Lee & Bobby “Mac The Knife” Darin, vocally mesmerising Marilyn Monroe, lots of laughs and a surprise guest!
The show stars Kevin Fitzsimmons (the voice of Sinatra in TV advert with Oscar-nominated film-star Naomi Watts, ITV’s Loose Women, BBC Don’t Tell The Bride & rave reviews nationwide) and vintage-vocalist virtuoso (and former Miss Universe participant) Megan McConnell, backed by the Capitol Orchestra (feat. players from the Ronnie Scott’s Big Band/BBC Big Band).
