Macbeth Audiobook

Macbeth

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: A Full Cast, Fiona Shaw, Stephen Dillane Release Date: August 1998

Macbeth, Shakespeare's last great tragedy, has remained one of the most popular plays since it's first performance in 1606 - probably in front of King James. This exciting new audiobook production is directed with fresh imagination by Fiona Shaw who breaks the conventional strait jacket that has hampered the development of Shakespeare on audio. We are as much in the twenty-first century as in medieval Scotland - the tensions, the politics, the struggle for power and dark ambition is part of our lives... This is also reflected in the sound world, with modern machinery and tanks. Macbeth is part of Naxos AudioBooks' exciting new series of complete dramatisations of the works of Shakespeare, in conjunction with Cambridge University Press. It uses the New Cambridge Shakespeare text, as used by the Royal Shakespeare Company and educational institutions across the world.

A Midsummer Night's Dream Audiobook

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Michael Maloney, Sarah Woodward, Warren Mitchell Release Date: October 1997

A Midsummer Night's Dream must be one of the most enduringly popular of Shakespeare's plays, and it is not difficult to see why: the work blends several kinds of comedy with a powerful atmosphere of magic and mystery and a satisfying set of contrasts - between city and country, reason and imagination, love and infatuation.

Hamlet Audiobook

Hamlet

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Various Readers Release Date: June 1997

Hamlet, which dates from 1600-1601, is the first in Shakespeare's great series of four tragedies, the others being Othello (1603), King Lear (1605) and Macbeth (1606). In writing this extraordinary play Shakespeare effectively reinvented tragedy after an interval of roughly two thousand years - we have to go back to the Greek dramatists of fifth-century Athens to find anything of comparable depth and maturity.
