Shakespeare in Opera, Ballet, Orchestral Music, and Song: An Introduction to Music Inspired by the Bard
Edwin Mellen Press, 1997 - 213 páginas
This work is unique in the field: the reader is introduced to music from several centuries and to five of the most popular plays in great detail (Macbeth, Romeo & Juliet, The Merry Wives of Windsor, Othello, A Midsummer Night's Dream). Other plays are discussed (1 & 2 Henry IV, Henry V, The Taming of the Shrew, The Merchant of Venice). It contains no musical notation and assumes no previous knowledge of music or of Shakespeare. It can be used in the classroom by a professor of English or of music. Suggested CD and video recordings are listed and keyed by page number to examples in the book.
