Don't miss this epic tale of shipwreck, heartbreak and redemption... John Bell (Narrator) & Simon Tedeschi (Pianist) performing 'Enoch Arden' James Crabb, Four Winds Artistic Director, brings you the next part in his new series of world-class performances - The Windsong Series. Founder of Bell Shakespeare, John Bell, and internationally acclaimed pianist, Simon Tedeschi - two of Australia’s great storytellers - bring their unique performance of Enoch Arden to Bermagui as part of their national tour. This epic melodrama, composed by Richard Strauss to the words of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s 1864 poem ‘Enoch Arden’, will be performed in words and music. "A tragic, tempestuous, romantic tale accompanied by the music of a genius. Half chamber music, half theatre." says Simon Tedeschi. The historic and artistic value of pairing poetry with classical music is something that both performers are eager to share with audiences as they tour around Australia. "Audiences can expect a moving and dramatic tale of shipwreck, loss and redemption--- very satisfying theatre" says John Bell. John Bell is one of Australian theatre’s most illustrious figures, having played a role in the development of our nation’s rich artistic culture, as founder of Bell Shakespeare, an actor and director. Simon Tedeschi, is one of the most sought-after pianists in Australia. After solo recitals and numerous awards throughout Europe, the USA and Asia, Tedeschi returned to Sydney in 2010 and has since performed as soloist for the Sydney and Adelaide Symphony Orchestras, Queensland Music Festival, Musica Viva and several concert series and major venues around the country.
