A lover of Shakespeare, Duke Ellington composed the “Such Sweet Thunder Suite” as his tribute to the Bard. SRJO teams up with Seattle Shakespeare Company to present this special suite of works. Each movement—including "Lady Mac," "Sonnet for Sister Kate," and "The Star-Crossed Lovers"—evokes favorite Shakespearean characters or quotes. Guest actors Hana Lass and Darragh Kennan present selections from the plays and sonnets that inspired Ellington to create the musical work.

Part of the “Seattle Celebrates Shakespeare Festival” throughout March and April, 2018.
