BEST OF WORDS AND MUSIC
Theatre, poetry, and lyric are the focus of this assemblage of our finest pairings of words and music.
Scenes from Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing are set by Ravi Jain and presented alongside music by Erich Korngold; Ophelia’s Mad Scene from Hamlet is paired with Richard Strauss’ lieder for soprano. Ted Dykstra and Richard Greenblatt perform excerpts from their smash hit 2 Pianos 4 Hands, Margaret Atwood’s series of poems Thriller Suite is read by Fiona Reid and set to original music, and Martha Burns, Gregory Hoskins, Rick Roberts give performances that blur the lines between poetry, music and theatre.
