It's a big year ahead for acclaimed Grammy-nominated singer, Stacey Kent. With the release of her most ambitious project yet, her first orchestral album, and another worldwide tour, Stacey returns to Leicester Square Theatre with her 5-piece band, featuring songs from the new album, 'I Know I Dream'.
This beautiful collection of songs, includes American Standards, Bossa Nova classics, Chansons, as well as original songs and reprises of some of Stacey's most loved repertoire - including numbers co-written by Nobel prizewinner Kazuo Ishiguro, whose songwriting partnership with Stacey has formed an essential plank of her repertoire.
With career sales approaching 2 million albums, Stacey's 11th studio album, 'I Know I Dream', is a highlight not only for its breathtaking beauty but also for its assured expressiveness. The Album follows 'Tenderly' (2015), an intimate collaboration with Brazilian music master, Robert Menescal. Stacey's previous albums include, the Brazilian-flavored, 'The Changing Lights' (2013), 'Dreamer In Concert' (2011), recorded live in Paris at La Cigale, her all-French, 'Raconte-moi' (2010), and the Platinum-selling, Grammy nominated, 'Breakfast on the Morning Tram' (2007).
For Stacey, whose international touring schedule keeps her on the road for most of the year, her return to London provides a rare opportunity for UK fans see her 'live' in concert.
