by BWW News Desk - Sep 19, 2014

The Bard is more modern and alive than ever in visionary Robert Wilson's Shakespeare's Sonnets, a contemporary take on 25 specially chosen sonnets from Shakespeare's canon. Set to a sweeping score composed by the renowned Rufus Wainwright, a genre-bending mix of medieval German Minnesang, classical, pop, and cabaret rock is performed by Bertolt Brecht's historic Berliner Ensemble. The sonnets were pared down and selected by Berliner dramaturge Jutta Ferbers who deftly adapted these captivating poems that were not originally intended for the theater. The production was first staged in Berlin in 2009 for the fourth centennial of the publishing of the sonnets. The production's world premiere was in April 2009 in Berlin and still runs in the Berliner Ensemble's repertory. (more...)
