Hear all of Shakespeare's Sonnets LIVE in Canberra
SHAKESPEARE: THE SONNETS OUT LOUD SATURDAY 30 APRIL 7PM
My thoughts and my discourse as madmen’s are, At random from the truth vainly expressed: For I have sworn thee fair, and thought thee bright, Who art as black as hell, as dark as night.
The Sonnets have invited imitation, homage, critique, parody and pastiche over the last four hundred years and continue to be infinitely quotable popping up everywhere – in film, song, stories, and life!
To mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, join us for a complete reading of these much loved works by renowned Shakespearean actor William Zappa and outstanding vocalist actor Tobias Cole, with live accompaniment by Benn Sutcliffe, in an absorbing evening directed by Dianna Nixon.
A rare opportunity to enjoy a complete reading of every one of Shakespeare's 154 sonnets,
to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.
