About Celebrity Series of Boston presents Cécile McLorin Salvant

Brilliant jazz vocalist, composer, and lyricist Cécile McLorin Salvant weaves a tale of women’s secrecy under the male gaze in her latest project, Mélusine. Salvant takes as her inspiration the European folk legend of Mélusine, the woman cursed to spend one day each week as a half-snake.

Featuring a mix of originals and reorchestrations of songs dating back to the twelfth century, Salvant brings her wide-ranging intellect, powerfully expressive voice, boundless creativity, and theatrical imagination to songs sung in French, English, Haitian Kreyól, and the ancient Southern French language Occitan.

Salvant was last seen on the Series in 2022 with “Ghost Songs,” an eclectic recording and performance project that drew heavily from her own journals and artworks, historical sources, and covers of Sting ad Kate Bush classics to tell tales of grief and love lost.

Experience the profound vision of a major talent with this fascinating song cycle from one of today’s most acclaimed singers in any genre.
