This Love Will Undo Us All Season: Thursday 1 - Saturday 3 April Time: 7.30pm Tickets: $15 full/ $12 concession

Wellington songwriter Dan Adams (Verona) has created an intimate live show of Shakespeare songs to celebrate the launch of his CD This Love Will Undo Us All. It is a stunning collection of poems and dialogue from Shakespeare¹s plays, set to acoustic rock styles that are both refreshingly unique and undeniably Kiwi.

The show features the original musicians from the CD - Dan Adams (vocals, guitar, fife), Sebastian Morgan-Lynch (cello) and Douglas Voon (percussion, backing vocals).

³With just three musicians it's easy for each sound to find its own space - something that is more difficult to achieve in a larger ensemble like Verona. In this relaxed setting I can explore the full range of my singing voice, and different shades of meaning in these amazing texts.²

For everyone who enjoyed art-rock band Verona¹s award winning Shakespeare show Storm (2002) and their recent NZ International Arts Festival show Geographical Cure this is a 'must see' night - and a chance to introduce friends and family to this inspiring musical talent.

The CD will be available for sale at the show or visit www.thislove.co.nz. Normally $30, there will be a special show CD price of $25.

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
