As a solo performer Camille has performed 5 Star sell out seasons in Australia, New York, UK and Ireland and sold out her run at the Sydney Opera House and the 3000 seated State Theatre as part of the Melbourne International festival last year…

She has also appeared as guest with Damien Rice and Shane McGowan.

As a singer, O’Sullivan enjoys a formidable reputation for her passionate and dramatic interpretations of the songs of Jacques Brel, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Kurt Weill and more.

    Strange but wonderful woman. Drunk, intelligent, deep, and lost like Tom Waits (brilliant cover versions though!), she's a circus and a dark cabaret queen. Go and see her live! Für alle deutschsprachigen Zögernden und Zaudernden eine kleine Entscheidungshilfe: Ich hab nach dem Konzert drüber gebloggt: http://www.lastfm.de/user/dasEfeu/journal/2011/12/22/596nu3_keine_ollen_camellen:_camille_o%27sullivan (Sorry, my review from the concert is in German!)

    Best seen in a small venue - but Camille's theatrical performance is wonderful in any setting - and perfectly suited to the Speigletent. She sings with feeling in three languages (English, French and German) and sounds and looks wonderful in all of them!
