The life story of this most famous of English Romantics (1788-1824) reads like a script from the latest Hollywood blockbuster, teeming with talent and sensuality. The very term ‘Byronic’ has come to symbolize the brilliant, yet self-destructive artist as anti-hero. Experience the beauty, power and passion of his poetry and prose as Dr. Covington transforms himself into one of the most famous poets of all time in this tour-de-force, living biography performance in period costume that captures the bravura and very essence of Byron himself.
