Berliner Ensemble
By Robert Wilson and Rufus Wainwright
Sonnet selection by Jutta Ferbers

“the audience reacted to almost every single sonnet with rapturous applause”
—Der Spiegel
Iambic pentameter gets a surreal makeover in this pop-opera romp through Shakespeare’s sonnets from director Robert Wilson and composer Rufus Wainwright. The Bard’s enigmatic poems are pared down to 25 selections, set to everything from medieval German Minnesang to cabaret rock and performed by Bertolt Brecht’s historic Berliner Ensemble. As pallid, genderqueer[1] dramatis personæ, the virtuosic performers smirk and sneer through expressionistic slapstick, while Wilson’s signature sculpting of time, light[2], and gesture evokes an absurdist dream.
