Australian theatre icon John Bell AO OBE and internationally acclaimed pianist Simon Tedeschi present Bright Star, a feast of Romantic poetry and music featuring the works of Keats and Schubert. This innovative and inspiring performance explores the life, love and genius of two bright stars of the Romantic era – John Keats and Franz Schubert. Though they never met, these giants of literature and music were kindred spirits: both died young, having loved a woman beyond his reach, and both created masterpieces which still resonate strongly today. Performing poems of Keats including Bright Star, Ode to a Nightingale, and La Belle Dame Sans Merci, with music by Schubert including Ave Maria, Winterreise and Sonata no.18 in G major, Bell and Tedeschi share their insights into these timeless works, and the lives of the artists who created them.
