School of Music Concert: Artistry! 5 - Shakespeare and Song Other events...
Shakespeare and Song: Depictions of Shakespearean Emotions in Arias and Song Artistry!

This exciting program draws on verse by Shakespeare presented both in spoken and sung recitation to explore early modern as well as contemporary understandings of human emotion: passion, hate, joy, sorrow, anger and fear.

A star-studded cast of professional operatic singers together with actors from the Australian Shakespeare Festival and Shakespeare WA combine forces in this cutting-edge and exciting evening.

This program collaborates with the newly launched Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of the Emotions (Europe, 1100-1800).

For lovers of Shakespeare, drama and music, this is a unique opportunity. Experience the way in which the colour of Shakespeare, the composers and the performing artists combine to great effect.

Take the opportunity to meet the artists afterwards and discuss the history of human emotions as explored in their artistic lives and practice.
