Covid Captivity Cabaret: Lockdown Sonnets


Latin Rediscovery


Opera singer Ann Liebeck started writing sonnets about her feelings as lockdown hit the UK at the beginning of the Coronavirus epidemic. Composer Paul Moylan picked up on the dramatic thread of broken dishwashers, panic-buying and genuine grief which led to Paul composing songs to Ann's poems. They communicated by Messenger and WhatsApp and decided to record at distance on their phones with Jonny, Ann's son. And so 'Covid Captivity Cabaret' was born.

At Brighton Fringe they will perform this show LIVE for the first time as a band at theSpaceUK Online with additional brand new original material by Ann (vocals), Paul Moylan (double bass) and Jonny Liebeck (piano). Laugh along at Ann's love song to her broken dishwasher, cry with the Covid Madonna and march out of lockdown with the Vaccine Army, a tambourine flourish and clickety clack of castanets!
