About Sonnets

Description

“Two loves I have of comfort and despair / Which like two spirits do suggest be still!...” –From William Shakespeare Sonnets

Rodney Griffin created Sonnets especially for Dudley Williams, who originally played the part of the Poet. Set to lute music, this sensual yet playful ballet involves an emotional triangle; a mysterious Dark Lady comes between two male lovers, the Poet and the Friend.
