Two of Australia's finest artists bring to life Lord Tennyson's epic poem of love, loss and sacrifice, in Richard Strauss' dramatic and moving setting to music.

Enoch Arden

Presented 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
— Sydney Morning Herald
Tedeschi’s storytelling is compelling
— Sounds like Sydney

Narrator John Bell
Piano Simon Tedeschi
