“Much ado and all that jazz” – a dramatized concert in the keys of love.

Jazz on a lute, Shakespeare in a tux – why not?

Timeless love, courtship and bickering are centre stage in this musical drama where evergreens from the 20th century and immortal quotes from the 16th century meet and reach for each other in a delicate duet.

Dialogues from William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing”, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, “As You Like It”, “Twelfth Night” and “Romeo and Juliet”.

Music from the repertoire of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, Chet Baker and Marilyn Monroe, in arrangements for renaissance lute.

A succinct, consistent, dynamic and non-conformist exploration of Shakespeare's work in an excellent musical performance.
