Shakespeare's Mysterious Muse


How would singer/songwriter John Dowland's greatest hits have sounded if he had composed them this year? After all, echoes of his mastery occur again and again today – whether channelled by Ed Sheeran, Lorde, Pink, or a hundred other contemporary singer/songwriters.

Kiwi actor-countertenor, Glenn McKenzie explores this challenge in an eclectic and evocative romp through English music and theatre's most boisterous and creative days in his solo chamber work, Evensong. Painting a playful portrait of William Shakespeare's mysterious muse Mr W.H – the outrageous actor/singer who was the "master mistress of a poet's passion" – Evensong offers a fresh and contemporary interpretation of Dowland's finest songs and Henry Purcell's celebrated arias, framed by a selection of Shakespeare's most revealing scenes and sonnets.
