Juliet Letters

Concert or Performance

28 Nov 2021 Once Only Event

A song cycle for voice and string quartet written by Elvis Costello and the Brodsky Quartet.

“So there was this professor in Verona who answered letters addressed to Juliet[Capulet] Well, if that sounds like the start of a tall story I suppose it is Quite how he came by these letters in the first place remains unclear. We can only make a guess as to their content. After all, these people were writing to an imaginary woman, and a dead imaginary woman at that. Perhaps they were simply scholarly enquiries, or letters of sympathy from others disappointed in love, or even a plea from somebody forced into an unhappy arranged marriage. Whatever was contained in those letters and their replies, the idea of this correspondence provided our initial inspiration.” – Elvis Costello

These are those letters, in song form, sung by internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano, multiple Helpmann and Green Room award winner, principal artist with Opera Australia and cabaret superstar, Jacqueline Dark, together with the Phoenix Collective Quartet.
