A LIFE IN MANY PARTS
William Shakespeare’s comedy As You Like It serves as a character-rich springboard for Jason Barry-Smith’s adventurous song cycle. Jaques’ famous monologue is the inspiration for this tender and heartfelt show: “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances. And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages…”.
Well-known to Queensland audiences, Jason – an operatic baritone, composer and arranger – has crafted an illuminating concert that reflects the “seven ages” from infant, school-boy and lover among others. He also adds an eighth age of his own invention to reflect his experiences as a father.
In a musically rich and poetic recital, Jason’s repertoire will include Gilbert and Sullivan, Richard Maltby Jnr and Rodgers and Hammerstein.
