My Leonard Cohen
13/06/2019, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Stewart D’Arrietta and his band celebrate the late, great and legendary Leonard Cohen, offering arresting and imaginative arrangements of Cohen’s most iconic music and poetry, punctuated by stories of his life and the motivations behind the songs.
A smash hit at the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringe in 2016 and 2017 as well as sold-out shows at Sydney’s iconic Opera House, the stories in My Leonard Cohen give an insight into Cohen’s life with a good dose of laconic humour. The music is just fantastic! Nothing can rouse and seduce like the music and poetry of the great Leonard Cohen.
Expect Cohen’s best, including the heartrending Suzanne, the iconic Tower Of Song, the desperately sensual I’m Your Man, and the mournful, but mighty Hallelujah – all delivered as you’ve never heard them before.
