Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by The Renaissance Theater Company

This is the definitive Romeo and Juliet for audiophile scholars and teachers, as well as for all lovers of fine theater who know that reading Shakespeare on the printed page can be trying. By following along with a complete annotated text, the reader can glean the meaning and magic of Shakespeare especially well. Featuring Kenneth Branagh and Samantha Bond, the Renaissance Theater Company radiates other luminaries such as Gielgud and Jacobi. Add to this the exciting music composed by Patrick Doyle (who also scored Branagh's Henry V), wonderful sound effects, and Branagh's impeccable directing, and you have a production fit for the ages. Further refined by the clear and true recording techniques of the BBC, this modern production reminds us how magnificent Shakespeare is when we're given a chance to really hear him. P.W.
