My Leonard Cohen

Returning to the UK by popular demand, following acclaimed Edinburgh Fringe seasons in 2016 and 2017, and a sold-out run at the Sydney Opera House, Stewart D'Arrietta and his band are taking My Leonard Cohen on a tour of UK theatres this June.

Driven by D'Arrietta's raw vocal style, these are arresting and imaginative interpretations of the great singer-songwriter's most powerful works, performed by world-class musicians. Fans of D'Arrietta won't want to miss the rare opportunity to catch the multi award winning Australian performer, composer and musical director in the UK.

The classic Tower of Song, sensual I'm Your Man, and anthemic Hallelujah are just a few of the 18 Cohen favourites given the D'Arrietta treatment, alongside the heartrending In My Secret Life, kaleidoscopic Closing Time and menacing The Future. Poetic anecdotes, punctuated with D'Arrietta's trademark laconic humour, offer a narrative frame by which the audience can contemplate the life of one of the world's most enigmatic songwriters. This is Cohen's music as you've never heard it before
