THE ESSENTIAL SHAKESPEARE LIVE

by | Read by Peggy Ashcroft, Judi Dench, Alan Howard, et al.

Poetry & Drama • 2.25 hrs. • Audio Program • © 2005

Associate Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company Gregory Doran has assembled scenes and speeches from RSC productions from 1959 to the present into a powerful audio presentation. Lovers of Shakespeare will truly enjoy this treasure trove of great performances, with each track from the British Library Sound Archive presented in this audio format for the first time. Imagine listening to Laurence Olivier as Coriolanus speaking to the people of Rome; Janet Suzman as Cleopatra terrorizing a hapless messenger; Alan Rickman contemplating the Seven Ages of Man; and Patrick Stewart as Cassius in JULIUS CAESAR, to name a few of the highlights. While the audio presentation is captivating on its own, following along with the provided written text enhances the experience enormously.
