Trade Ed. CBC Audio 2003
CD ISBN 0660189615 $12.95 One CDs
If you enjoy vintage productions of radio theater, the CBC delivers just what you're waiting for in this archived MACBETH. The sound and style remind one of not only radio of the past, but also early television drama, with its dense, cloudy sound, semi-classical delivery, and busy production. It sounds as if there were two directors on board, one for the actors and one for the producers, and that is not meant as a compliment. If you love Shakespeare unconditionally, you'll want this nicely packaged CD for your collection. Yes, one CD for the entire play--a polite voice-over catches us up between scenes on what we've missed. D.J.B.
