No-one can beat Sir Ian at this kind of thing. He's probably one of the greatest performers of classical text. He doesn't just recite the verse, he speaks it. He speaks every sentence with immaculately chosen intonations that communicate meaning and emotion perfectly. I can't imagine a better reader to bring out the depth and magic of Homer.
This is a fun production of "Much Ado", with some lively and enjoyably performances, especially from Tennant and Spiro as Beatrice and Benedick. The text is cut a bit, but not to an extent that it will disturb non-purists.
This is a very well-produced and well-acted production. Sam West's performance is splendid; he's extremely clear in his diction and suitably ambiguous in his characterization of Hal, sliding smoothly between Machiavel and war hero.
I work. I ski. I play. I write. I have a family. I garden. I coach. I volunteer. I sketch. I run. I read.
The narration and explanations are helpful. I have always struggled through Shakespearean plays.
This production also comes with a performance that is uninterrupted. Start on Chapter 6 of the audio book for it.
