As melodious as Shakespeare's words were all by themselves, the Bard occasionally designated verse to be backed up by music as incidental songs. Taking that conceit and expanding upon it, this mesmerizing six-part concert program offers selections from his plays and poetry set to music by Brahms, Gounod, Haydn, and others, with material from "Cymbeline," "Hamlet," "Romeo and Juliet," "Twelfth Night," and more. 143 min. total. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
