The Sonnets Out Loud

30 April, Canberra.


A Street Contemporary Drama Presentation

“So are you to my thoughts as food to life,
Or as sweet seasoned showers are to the ground.”

Poetry lovers near the nation’s capital should head to The Street for a once-only chance to hear all 154 of Shakespeare’s sonnets performed live.

Hear William Zappa and Tobias Cole, under the direction of Dianna Nixon, give voice to some of the most famous poems in the English language, along with the  ones that only see the light of day more rarely. Zappa has one of the most illustrious pedigrees in Shakespeare performance in Australia, and the piece is being performed with live accompaniment.

7pm start, tickets $35-$25, one show only.
