The Waterloo Concert
Presented by Antelope Productions and the Delmaine String Quartet in association with Annesbrook
This unique event was first presented in Dangan, Co Meath in June 2015 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo and the Duke of Wellington’s historic connection with the Irish countryside. It features the Delmaine String Quartet and a cast of actors and singers in a programme of music, song, poetry and prose that reflects many aspects of the great battle and its aftermath. The performance includes works by Shostakovich, Beethoven, Schubert and Garret Wesley, the Duke’s own father, who was a distinguished composer and the first Professor of Music at Trinity College.
Actors Michael James Ford and Gary Jermyn relive the famous battle and the epic rivalry between Wellington and Bonaparte in a narrative that includes works by Lord Byron, Thomas Hardy, Elizabeth Longford and Rudyard Kipling along with the Iron Duke’s own letters and military dispatches. The concert also features some of the popular songs of the period, performed by acclaimed chanteuse Susannah De Wrixon, and transports the audience back to 1815 and the bloody field in Belgium where the history of Europe was reshaped.
