Never Such Innocence

Christopher Kent acclaimed production

2017-2018 Season 



Never Such Innocence, the acclaimed narrative recital of words and music from the First World War

which CK has been performing during the last year with the pianist Gamal Khamis is back.

We went to the Première at St Mary's Perivale and were deeply moved by this production.

We highly recommend Never Such Innocence commemorating events that affected almost every family in Europe.



There are a couple of performances coming up in London at Clapham Chamber Concerts this Friday 10th November and Jermyn Street Theatre on Sunday March 18th, plus others as per the full list below and a few more in the pipeline (including, we hope, some further north). 



NEVER SUCH INNOCENCE juxtaposes the words of writers like Wilfred Owen, Edward Thomas, Siegfried Sassoon and Vera Brittain and piano music by composers such as Elgar, Ravel, Debussy, Arnold Schoenberg and Ivor Gurney, with a linking narrative about my own great uncle Percy O'Key.


Audiences so far have been kind enough to describe it as "moving", "spell-binding" and "immensely absorbing".
