Crystal Clear Shakespeare
What did Shakespeare’s plays sound like in his day? How did those couplets rhyme?
UK actor, prolific author and presenter of Original Pronunciation (OP), Ben Crystal will work in Wellington with a troupe of renowned SGCNZ Alumni, exploring the fascinating original sound of Shakespeare’s plays. They will perform a Shakespeare Showcase of famous scenes, sonnets, songs, speeches and soliloquies in OP, readings full of rhyme, rhythm, and a very subtle humour. And a not-so-subtle one too!
Ben is a producer and artistic director of Passion in Practice and its Shakespeare Ensemble.
