Product Description

Review

Lesser leads an ensemble cast through eight Shakespeare plays, beginning with gloomy Richard II before moving on to Henry IV, Henry V, and Henry VI, concluding with the wicked but laughable Richard III. Elizabethan period music sets the dramatic scenes and provides a bridge between stories. In a mellow British accent and dignified pace, Lesser reads detailed prose versions of the plays. At strategic points, the ensemble actors create a sense of theater by declaiming the speeches word for word. Many of these interludes are famous monologues, but frequent dialogues add interest and variety. An accompanying booklet contains information about each play as well as a track-by-track guide (most helpful, as the back cover erroneously divides Henry V into three parts). This production, like four earlier Shakespeare recordings from Naxos, works both as a graceful pre-theater listening experience and a classroom resource. --Kristi Elle Jemtegaard, Booklist --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delightfully performed 14 Dec 2011
By Libby
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These Shakespeare stories and delightfully performed and the kids in my class loved them. Never mind the kids - I still enjoy to put them on in the car when I am on a long drive. Very easy to listen to and enjoy. A brilliant way to introduce Shakespeare to newbies or school children. So much better than seeing them in shortened form on animated tales, as it allows the children to form their own images and use their imagination.
