Sonnets Unplugged is the world premiere of a fully-orchestrated original drama, setting 16 of Shakespeare’s sonnets to music by Gareth Farr. It’s brought to life by actors Rima Te Wiata and Kristian Lavercombe, who reveal the sonnets in a new way by linking them into a strong storyline based around three characters – the poet, his mistress, and his muse.
Anyone who loves the language of love should not miss this concert! Gareth calls it a darkly passionate “sound world” full of acting, song and dance.
William Shakespeare will never be the same!
