Macbeth - Romeo & Julia Kören



A musical drama that initially evolved from working with Janequin’s epic piece La Guerre and some of 15th century composer Josquin Desprez’ profane songs. The scenic images that spring forth suggest a grim story: a story recognized and already written – William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. So the story is told once again, using fragments of Shakespeare’s original text and the suggestive music of Janequin and Desprez.

Born of the stage, the Romeo & Julia Kören honours a musical storytelling tradition. The ensemble sings and emotes, making performances a visual as well as musical experience. The result is a singular brand of vocal drama.
