Farinelli and the King

Duke of York's Theatre
3 October

If you asked me I'd go
without a glance,
give up this life of cloves
and oranges laced in a crowd
at dusk, the scent of roses
crushed, perfume
to the world's applause.
I'd stay forever
in this hide of trees,
a songbird singing
to the stars alone.
With the world as my witness,
my voice, your loveliness.

Farinelli and the King runs at the Duke of York's Theatre until 5 December
