RECENT EVENTS - Pink Martini featuring special guest Rufus Wainwright

Monday 29 April 2013 - 7:30 PM

Pink Martini | Royal Albert Hall

Approximate end time 9:20pm

Somewhere between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble, a Brazilian marching street band and Japanese film noir is the 12-piece Pink Martini.

Pink Martini will be joined by very special guest Rufus Wainwright.

Part language lesson, part Hollywood musical, the Portland, Oregon-based ‘little orchestra’ was created in 1994 by Harvard graduate and classically trained pianist Thomas M. Lauderdale. Equally at home performing its romantic, multi-lingual repertoire on concert stages and in smoky bars, Pink Martini draws a wildly diverse crowd.

This show will feature original Pink Martini vocalist China Forbes.

"Classy, charming, sexy, elegant, sophisticated, take your pick to describe the globe-trotting eclectic mix that is Pink Martini." The Sun

"Pink Martini are on a mission to bring back romance and beauty." Daily Telegraph
