Rufus and Shakespeare

June 28, 2009

Emma Lew Thomas came back from Germany aglow with Rufus Wainwright and Robert Willson’s collaboration on 25 Shakespeare Sonnets. Nothing has been released to date, so, sniffing around YouTube I found a collection of sonnets in progress, as well as a preview from a Berlin TV news show. I threw in the Bacharach collaboration for the heck of it.

This looks fascinating, and bizarre. Shame my German isn’t up to much… do you know if the show will tour at all?

I am not clear on the touring plans here. I know Emma Lew wants to bring it to UCLA somehow. Check his website for the lates info.
