Quartet

by Ronald Harwood

was performed in Basildon Village Hall

from Thursday 19th May to Saturday 21May 2016

Quartet takes place in a retirement home for singers and musicians and revolves around four of singers who in their youth were stars of opera. In retirement their voices, health and in some cases their memories are failing. Together they discuss old times and what happened that broke up their successful quartet many years earlier. The retirement home annual concert looms and they decide to repeat their most famous performance of Verdi's Rigoletto Quartet, only using a recording instead of their failing voices.
