The_Shakespeare_Heptet-Love&TheSonnets

Think Shakespeare’s sonnets are all about love? Think again! Experience the extraordinary passion of Shakespeare’s darker-themed sonnets in this unique and atmospheric venue. The ensemble explore through their hauntingly gorgeous music the Bard’s preoccupation with mortality, death and the glorious agony of love.

 

Alluring, wholly contemporary and blending many influences, they provide a stunning soundtrack to the sonnets. Beautiful vocal harmonies, compelling rhythms and the sounds of 12 and 6 string guitars underscore Shakespeare’s exquisite poetry. Their influences are diverse, from tango to folk-blues. The Heptet draw out the deeper meaning of each sonnet through their music; carefully crafted to reflect Shakespeare’s words. They are excited to return to the Bristol Shakespeare Festival after 2017’s sell out performance, with this special dark theme for their first appearance at Arnos Vale Cemetery.

 

As Time marches unpityingly on, love’s flower is revealed to be ever more beautiful.
