Enoch ArdenPresented by Adelaide Festival Centre
The great Romantic poet Alfred Lord Tennyson’s epic poem Enoch Arden set to music by German composer Richard Strauss.
The poem tells the tragic tale of a shipwrecked seaman who returns home to find his adored wife married to his best friend and ultimately dies of a broken heart.
John Bell AO OBE, founder of Bell Shakespeare, and internationally acclaimed pianist Simon Tedeschi bring their undisputed magic to this tragic yet uplifting story of love and loss.
Pure brilliance... masterful... This was a powerhouse performance with an intense corporeality... insightful and exhilarating
Tedeschi’s storytelling is compelling
