Musical Shakespeare


William Shakespeare exerts a powerful influence, not only on literature and drama, but on the other arts as well. Composers from the Renaissance to present day, have created music expressly for the performance of his plays and sonnets. Our seminar will explore this repertoire by examining masterworks of music in relation to their Shakespearean antecedents.
