Notes On Loving: Much Ado About Nothing

Music, Film & Theatre

Based on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, Notes
On Loving explores the ways in which we overcomplicate, misunderstand, and mishandle romantic love.

Set to music by both the 20th Century composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold and contemporary composer Jacob Fitzgerald. Four live musicians accompany dancers Gabriella
Engdahl and Emily Pahlawan-Collinson, as they take us through the many ages, stages, and guises of romance.

Jacob Fitzgerald is a British composer of experimental, classical and electronic based in Cambridge and Hereford.
Writing for a wide variety of settings, Jacob has had his work performed and commissioned by ensembles including the Ligeti Quartet, the Brodsky Quartet, the Phaedra Ensemble, Dr K Sextet, and Prime Brass in venues ranging from St John’s Smith Square, London, to a disused pump station
in Suffolk.

Jacob holds the bass choral scholarship at Hereford Cathedral where he enjoys a busy schedule singing eight services a week.

Notes On Loving is a piece of dance theatre that asks what all the fuss is about, and that reveals Shakespeare’s observations on love to be as relevant as ever.

Notes On Loving: Much Ado About Nothing will be in The Courtyard’s Studio Theatre on Thursday 7 & Friday 8 July
at 7.45pm.
