A gripping combination of classical music, murder & great literature
Featuring a dramatic retelling of Tolstoy’s The Kreutzer Sonata, and a spine chilling performances of music by Janáček, Schubert & Haydn this is a rare combination of words and music in the superb acoustics of the Thomas Brown Gallery.
Describing a crime of passion, The Kreutzer Sonata was instantly banned in both Russia & the USA, and Tolstoy branded a sexual moral pervert by President Theodore Roosevelt.
Words Are Weapons is a concert created by the Sydney Art Quartet, a dynamic group of Australian musicians known for their electrifying and refreshing performances that embrace multiple arts forms and senses.
Words Are Weapons was previously staged in Australia in sell-out concerts with David Wenham (Lion, Seachange, 300 and Pirates of the Caribbean)
