MARGINALIA. 'A Rose by Another Name'
“Moments of real drama and of beautiful music… Both deliver Bellini’s music as if born to sing early nineteenth-century opera.” – Plays to See
Marginalia irreverently combines Shakespeare’s timeless words with Bellini’s intoxicating melodies in a newly devised and fully staged production for two singers and an actor, bringing you star-crossed lovers as never before.
Romeo and Love have been a pretty dysfunctional team for a long time. Rosaline… that didn’t go so well. Maybe Juliet will finally be the one, if Love can exercise some self-control and rein in her penchant for chaos. But desire and egotism are dangerous bedfellows: Juliet struggles desperately amid powerful currents of coercion and manipulation. A noble passion to heal age-old rifts? Perhaps not.
