Julius Caesar Shakespeare in Performance by William Shakespeare, David Bevington, Peter HollandThe audio CD with this edition of Julius Caesar contains a series of unique recordings to illustrate how different actors place their own interpretation on the play. Hear Orson Welles in a 1938 recording reciting Mark Antony's famous speech. Compare this to Adrian Lester's performance from 2003. There are also performances from Herbert Beerbohm Tree, Simon Russell Beale and Richard Dreyfuss. The text is illustrated throughout with photographs from notable productions, including the 1953 movie starring Marlon Brando as Mark Antony, the RSC's 1972 production directed by Trevor Nunn and the 2005 production at the Barbican. The book also takes you behind the scenes with reproductions of set drawings, costume designs and scene edits, all from original notes. As well as the playtext, there are articles covering a range of topics including 'In Production: Julius Caesar through the Years' by Robert Ormsby, 'Julius Caesar in Popular Culture' by Douglas Lanier, 'A Voice Coach's Perspective on Speaking Shakespeare' by Andrew Wade and 'In the Age of Shakespeare' by Thomas Garvey. The Sourcebooks Shakespeare Julius Caesar is an invaluable tool for students of all ages from GCSE to A Level and beyond.
'This intriguing series focuses on Shakespeare in performance... The books themselves are packed with information - photographs of key performances, essays on productions, and interviews with actors and directors. Opposite each play text an extensive glossary explains unfamiliar words, and the audio clips are marked alongside corresponding scenes... The CDs reinforce the beauty and power of the language in performance, and will undoubtedly enhance anyone's understanding and enjoyment of Shakespeare's plays, as they were meant to be experienced.'
'This new Shakespeare book and CD brings Shakespeare's plays leaping to life. This innovative format contains text, audio and illustration... This is a revolutionary resource.'
[Review of Richard III] 'A complete package for anyone wanting to study the play itself, and the performance dimension... It is complemented by an excellent CD which includes narrative by Derek Jacobi set alongside contrasting performances from major productions of the play with some of the greatest stage interpretations of the Bard's work.
