About the event

In 1993, Elvis Costello stunned critics and audiences alike with his gorgeous and ambitious album and song cycle, The Juliet Letters, recorded with The Brodsky Quartet. Against all predictions, the live-recorded classically leaning album, comprised of imaginary letters to Juliet Capulet climbed the charts worldwide. The Crossing Machine will breathe new life into the album, in a stage production at The Fringe Festival.

The Crossing Machine is a Melbourne based string quartet, bringing together some of the most in demand string players in the country. Collectively, they have worked with Alice Cooper, Roger Daltrey, Elton John, Jimmy Barnes, Peter Frampton, Barry Humphries, Billy Thorpe, Guy Sebastian, Kate Ceberano and Circus Oz.

For this limited season of The Juliet Letters they are joined by stalwart tenor opera singer Asher Reichman.
