Shakespeare in Song

A song recital of songs from Shakespeare’s plays set by British composers interwoven with spoken poetry from his plays and sonnets. 

“ … Lucy Stevens magically interpreted classics and lesser known works, interspersed with short soliloquy’s from some of Shakespeare’s most masterful creations of character … The performance was a triumph, capturing the singer’s radiant personality, she proved without a doubt, what a fantastically talented contralto she is. Her pianist, Elizabeth Marcus, supported her with great sensitivity and is surely one of the finest accompanists of her generation.  The audience were in raptures by the end.”  Gerald O’Brien The Verse Magazine
