From the very early beginnings of opera, Shakespeare’s plays have been adapted for the musical stage by composers across the world.
In this engrossing new performance – devised by Northern Opera Group – we bring together Shakespeare’s original plays with the operas inspired by them, taking us on a journey through 400 years of opera and Shakespeare.
