Description

DOshoreditch - Shakespearean Summers

Loft party meets Musical Soirée

Following the sell out success of our last two nights, this July DOshoreditch brings you an evening of music inspired by Shakespeare! From film scores to opera, musicals to song, we'll be sharing rousing ensembles, playful arias, musical favourites and enchanting songs all based on Shakespeare's works.


Music on the night

Highlights of the evening will include Broadway favourites from Bernstein's West Side Story and Cole Porter's Kiss Me Kate (based on The Taming of the Shrew) to operatic greats including Verdi's Falstaff and Gounod's Roméo et Juliette. From piano classics in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet and Prokofiev's Montagues & Capulets (shamelessly highjacked by The Apprentice for their theme tune!) to Jonathan Dove's enchanting song cycle for unaccompanied soprano 'Arial' inspired by The Tempest.


Held at the Shoreditch Treehouse, DOshoreditch promises an enchanting night of conversation, music, and revelation. All you need to do is BYOB.

FAQs -

  • How does the evening work? Each music set is divided into 3 x 30 minute blocks, so there's plenty of time for chats and drink refills - don't forget to BYOB (we'll provide the ice and the cushions!).
