Romeo + Juliet – Royal Festival Hall, 2015

July 15’ saw Some Voices take over Southbank Centre with their choral re-telling of Baz Luhrmann’s much-loved film Romeo + Juliet, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes.

With their voices ringing out the soundtrack of the greatest love story ever told, they performed an immersive event that placed Southbank at the very heart of the Shakespearean family feud. The show featured ‘Kissing You’, ‘Lovefool’ and ‘Everybody’s Free’ as well as an original arrangement of Jeff Buckley’s ‘Hallelujah’.

With Neon crosses, incense and the spectacular tale of romance, Some Voices transformed the promenade in this stand alone performance at the Festival of Love.

Some Voices

SOME VOICES started small in 2010, with seven chorus members meeting up to perform original arrangements of popular classics that range from Bowie to Bjork, from Stevie Wonder to Stevie Nicks, from Folk to Hip Hop, and everything in between - all with a Some Voices twist.

Eight years down the line, more than 800 singers are now part of the exciting ensemble that performs on some of the biggest stages in London. KOKO, The Southbank Centre, Oval Space, The Coronet, The Rivoli Ballroom and The Troxy have all seen the group attract audiences in their thousands
