In 1993, Elvis Costello in conjunction with The Brodsky Quartet penned The Juliet Letters. A song cycle with string quartet and voice. Against all predictions, the live-recorded classically leaning album, comprised of imaginary letters to Juliet Capulet climbed the charts worldwide. For one show only, The Crossing Machine will breathe new life into the album, in a stage production at The Brunswick Ballroom.
The Crossing Machine is an establishing 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 show The Crossing Machine will be joined by Adam Starr, versatile and enigmatic singer from the band Frock.
