"Julius Caesar": Shakespeare in Performance

    By

    The audio CD with this edition of Julius Caesar contains a series of unique recordings to illustrate how different actors place their own interpretation on the play. Hear Orson Welles in a 1938 recording reciting Mark Antony's famous speech. Compare this to Adrian Lester's performance from 2003. There are also performances from Herbert Beerbohm Tree, Simon Russell Beale and Richard Dreyfuss. The text is illustrated throughout with photographs from notable productions, including the 1953 movie starring Marlon Brando as Mark Antony, the RSC's 1972 production directed by Trevor Nunn and the 2005 production at the Barbican. The book also takes you behind the scenes with reproductions of set drawings, costume designs and scene edits, all from original notes. As well as the playtext, there are articles covering a range of topics including 'In Production: Julius Caesar through the Years' by Robert Ormsby, 'Julius Caesar in Popular Culture' by Douglas Lanier, 'A Voice Coach's Perspective on Speaking Shakespeare' by Andrew Wade and 'In the Age of Shakespeare' by Thomas Garvey. The Sourcebooks Shakespeare Julius Caesar is an invaluable tool for students of all ages from GCSE to A Level and beyond.
