Henry VIII Audiobook

Henry VIII

King Henry is married to Katherine of Aragon, but he has been smitten by the charms of the queen’s maid of honor, Anne Bullen, and is tempted to divorce his dignified and noble wife. Meanwhile, the lords of England resent the influence of Henry’s trusted advisor, Cardinal Wolsey, who is gradually drawing power into his own hands. As Katherine and Wolsey suffer their tragic falls, new figures rise to fill their places, but they, too, will be brought low by the inexorable sweep of time and fortune. This colorful history play, possibly written in collaboration with John Fletcher, comes from the very end of Shakespeare’s dramatic career. Paul Jesson plays Henry VIII, and Jane Lapotaire plays Queen Katherine. Timothy West is Cardinal Wolsey. “The fine production…infuses much more life into this stately, pageant-like play than one might expect from the text…A lifelike sound design that even includes the murmurs of agreement or dismay of listening characters.”—AudioFile

Anna in the Tropics Audiobook

Anna in the Tropics

Author: Nilo Cruz Narrator: Various Performers Release Date: December 2005

This poignant and poetic Pulitzer Prize winning play captures 1929 Florida at a time when cigars are still rolled by hand and "lectors" are employed to educate and entertain the workers. The arrival of a new lector is a cause for celebration. But when he reads aloud from "Anna Karenina", he unwittingly becomes a catalyst in the lives of his avid listeners, for whom Tolstoy, the tropics, and The American Dream prove a volatile combination. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance starring: Jimmy Smits as Juan Julian Onahoua Rodriguez as Marela Adriana Sevan as Conchita Alma Martinez as Ofelia Jonathan Nichols as Palomo and Eliades Winston Rocha as Santiago Herbert Siguenza as Chéché Directed by Jose Luis Valenzuela.

Richard III Audiobook

Richard III

Brilliantly manipulative and entirely amoral, the hero-villain Richard is one of Shakespeare’s greatest roles. The Yorkists have emerged victorious from the civil wars and Edward IV wears the English crown. But Edward’s misshapen brother Richard harbors kingly ambitions and will stop at nothing to achieve the throne. In a fatal battle on Bosworth Field, Richard meets the ghosts of all whom he has murdered and the Earl of Richmond, the future King Henry VII. Richard III is played by David Troughton. Saskia Wickham plays Lady Anne, Margaret Robertson plays Queen Margaret, and Philip Voss is Buckingham. “As timely and satisfying a dramatic experience as anything on audio…Troughton’s portrayal of Richard feels more intimate with the audience than most stage productions.”—AudioFile

Antigone Audiobook

Antigone

Author: Jean Anouilh Narrator: Various Performers Release Date: October 2005

The body of Polynices, Antigone's brother, has been ordered to remain unburied by Creon, the new king of Thebes. Antigone's faithfulness to her dead brother and his proper burial, and her defiance of the dictator Creon, seals her fate. Originally produced in Paris during the Nazi occupation, Anouilh's Antigone was seen by the French as theatre of the resistance and by the Germans as an affirmation of authority. Includes an interview with translator Christopher Nixon and director Brendon Fox. Also includes an interview with Ned Chaillet, a playwright, radio producer and director for the BBC. Chaillet is the former Deputy Drama Critic for the Times of London and the London theatre critic for the Wall Street Journal-Europe. He spoke with us about Antigone in the context of World War Two, the differences bewtween the original myth of Sophocles and the Anouilh version, and Anouilh’s influence on later playwrights. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Jordan Bridges as Haemon and Guard Dominic Fumusa as Guard Francis Guinan as Creon John Hansen as Guard and Messenger Alan Mandell as Chorus Elizabeth Marvel as Antigone Alley Mills as Nanny Mandy Siegfried as Ismene Directed by Brendon Fox. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles.

Henry VI, Part 3 Audiobook

Henry VI, Part 3

The monstrous power of one of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters, Richard Plantagenet, emerges in Henry VI, Part 3, a portent of things to come. The Yorkists have been temporarily victorious and the Duke of York has assumed the throne, but the Lancastrians, led by Queen Margaret, counter-attack. As the fortunes of war shift, both the innocent and the guilty are swept up in the maelstrom. And increasingly dominant amid the chaos is the sinister figure of the crook-backed Richard, Duke of Gloucester. David Tennant plays Henry VI, and Kelly Hunter plays Queen Margaret. Clive Merrison is the Duke of York, Stephen Boxer is Edward IV, and John Bowe is Warwick. Richard of Gloucester is played by David Troughton. “Besides the powerful David Tennant performing the title role, supporting cast members are all impressive. Listeners can look forward to Kelly Hunter as Queen Margaret, played with energetic ruthlessness, as well as Clive Merrison’s ambitious Duke of York. Any one of the Arkangel recordings is well worth collecting, and this is no exception.”—AudioFile

Aided by the spirit Ariel, Prospero uses his magical art to bring his enemies under his control.

Ein Hungerkünstler Audiobook

Ein Hungerkünstler

Author: Franz Kafka Narrator: Klaus Schreiber Release Date: October 2005

Der Hungerkünstler hungert auf Jahrmärkten für Schaulustige: er nimmt über Wochen hinweg nur etwas Wasser zu sich. Dieser unmenschliche Kampf gegen den Hunger, gegen sich selbst wird vom Protagonisten meisterlich beherrscht und vom Zirkusdirektor schaurig in Szene gesetzt. Irgendwann interessiert sich kaum jemand mehr für diese Kunst, doch der Hungerkünstler tut das, was er am besten kann: er hungert weiter... Eine packende, nüchtern-brutale, zeitweise auch komisch erzählte Geschichte in einer hervorragenden Interpretation von Klaus Schreiber!

Was weiß ich! Der junge Mann, ganz von Selbstvertrauen und Lebensfreude durchdrungen, ignoriert die drei Warnungen einer unheimlichen Stimme, die auf seiner Bergbesteigung zu ihm spricht..Frühlingsnacht im Seziersaal Kurios und sehr österreichisch geht es in diesem Schnitzler zu: es wird sogar getanzt im Seziersaal.

Der Bau Audiobook

Der Bau

Author: Franz Kafka Narrator: Thorsten Zaiak Release Date: October 2005

Dieser Text ist ein echter Kafka-Klassiker: ein Menschtier, das sich aus Furcht immer tiefer in ein unterirdisches Labyrinth aus Gängen und Kreuzungen zurückzieht. Der 'Bau' wendet sich bald gegen seinen Erbauer, aus dem Albtraum wie aus dem Labyrinth ist kein Entkommen mehr. Ob die schrecklichen Angreifer, vor denen das intelligente Tier sich so fürchtet, real oder irreal sind, spielt bald keine Rolle mehr: der schlimmste Feind seines Lebens ist der Bauherr selbst. Wie kein anderer versteht es Kafka, menschliche Ängste in eine ebenso nüchterne wie brillante literarische Form zu gießen. Ein Meisterwerk!
