Young listeners will greatly benefit from these well-written (but never condescending) synopses, which untangle those potentially confusing plot lines and introduce favorite excerpts from eight of Shakespeare's plays, including Much Ado About Nothing, Antony and Cleopatra, and A Winter’s Tale. Juliet Stevenson and Simon Russell Beale take turns narrating these elegant stories, which also shed light on some of Shakespeare's most famous dialogue. Each brings a different, though equally insightful, touch to the role. Speaking parts are performed by a talented cast of British actors. This production offers an excellent introduction to Shakespeare's plays, or an enjoyable recap of old favorites.
Eight more plays introduced for younger audiences, including Much Ado About Nothing, Antony and Cleopatra, The Winter's Tale, Measure for Measure, and All's Well That Ends Well.
