Sonnet--Featuring the Music of Oberon (2000)

Sonnet--Featuring the Music of Oberon

The idea is to sensitize the public to Shakespeare by segueing from one sonnet to another with the compositions of the New Age duo Oberon, but the result is more like Hooked-on-Classics for bistro-haunting English majors. Still, as New Age duos go, Oberon isn’t entirely revolting, and the actors and actresses pronounce their speeches trippingly on the tongue. Rating: Three iambs out of five.
