From Tristan and Isolde, to Romeo and Juliet, to Catherine and Heathcliffe, we are captivated by stories of star-crossed lovers - soulmates who are fated to be torn apart. We feature Mahler's haunting Songs of a Wayfarer (in Schoenberg's gorgeous chamber version) plus the premiere of Dean Burry's thrilling new adaptation of The Highwayman - as well as famous laments by Purcell and Gluck, and a set of songs from West Side Story. Readings are from the diaries and letters of great lovers through the ages.

Featuring James McLennan, tenor, Doug MacNaughton, baritone, Ross Manson, actor/reader, and the Talisker Players.
