There is a strong and indelible bond between Shakespeare and music. Many of his plays contain songs and ballads (for which the author often supplied the texts) while incidental music was often added by celebrated composers for specific productions of his plays.

This DVD presents six half-hour programs that contains certain spoken texts (from his plays or poetry) and linked musical excerpts within a given theme. The programs are centered on vocal excerpts but also contain instrumental and chamber-music pieces, directly derived from and inspired by the works of William Shakespeare.

The six principal themes are:
• The Elizabethan and The Restoration Rules
• Shakespeare and opera
• Shakespeare abroad
• Shakespearian heroine
• Shakespeare and Broadway
• Shakespeare in Love
