Shakespeare's sonnets, Bach, and a sprinkling of Verdi - an early evening charity performance in the heart of Soho! 100% of the proceeds go to selected charities.
Tickets available here: www.bachandsonnets.com
Shakespeare's sonnets, a Bach cello suite, and a touch of Verdi to round it off - treat yourself to an early evening injection of high culture and you'll be out by 8 pm just in time to grab dinner.
Twelve of the Bard's love poems alternate with the six movements of Bach’s first cello suite, and the evening culminates in a rendition of Ave Maria from Verdi’s Otello.
Australian-born opera singer and actress Justine Viani declares her love not only to British-Dutch cellist Laurens Price-Nowak, but also to handpicked members of the audience.
Costumes are by British fashion designer Janet Rodney, concept and direction are by the German theatre and music producer Wolfgang Mittelmaier.
