Michael Lang, director & choreographer
Juliette Quinlan plays the part of Shakespeare himself as the figments of his imagination in the form of Puck, Romeo, Iago, and Ariel inspire his ideas which will eventually become his future masterpieces. Michael Lang’s world premiere of Moving Soliloquies takes us on a unique journey of Shakespeare’s famous speech “All the world’s a stage” performed by Jaques in As You Like It.
Toledo Ballet dancers will move, portray, and ponder Jaques’ seven ages of life—Infancy, The Schoolboy, The Lover, The Soldier, Justice, Old Age, and Oblivion—accompanied by the chamber music of Beethoven, Ravel, Shostakovich, Grieg, and others all performed live by Toledo Symphony musicians.
This performance will be available on demand until May 25.
