This is the audio program to play at home over Christmas or during the car journey to see relatives. Dylan Thomas, "The Little Match Girl," and "The Nutcracker" are read by Jenny Agutter with accompanying Tchaikovsky's music - this is a must for Christmas. It contains new recordings as well as some of the finest tracks from the Naxos AudioBooks catalogue.
"Okay, but a bit boring."
Shakespeare's romantic adventure is full of tyrants, incest, murder, knights, teenagers, pirates, brothels, sublime poetry, young love, a great hero, and the goddess Diana. A multicultural cast, world music, and the poet Benjamin Zephaniah give this timeless tale a contemporary twist.
Rap along with Benjamin Zephaniah to the beat of his unique performance poetry. Hip, zany and streetwise, this is an excellent collection from one of our leading modern poets. The poems are taken mainly from the books Talking Turkeys and Funky Chickens. (The audio versions vary slightly from the written text in Benjamin's books.)
