Shakespeare Live! From The RSC (DVD) Product Description

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 or region free DVD player in order to play. 

On Shakespeare's birthday, the BBC and the Royal Shakespeare Company come together in an extravaganza, celebrating Shakespeare's words and his enduring influence on all performance art forms - from Berlioz and Bernstein, to hip-hop and jazz, from ballet to Broadway to blues and back. (If you don’t like this sentence you could say....from opera to jazz, dance to musicals). This unique event, from the stage of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, will take place in the presence of Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, and is hosted by David Tennant and Catherine Tate.
