London Philharmonic Orchestra Pre-Concert Event: Shakespeare400

You're in for a classical music treat

The decade during which Strauss composed his Macbeth overture was one of ferocious and spectacular creativity where Shakespeare’s Scottish play was concerned. In this cross arts exploration, Dr Lucy Munro of King’s College London will be joined by actors and musicians to explore two landmark productions of Macbeth through visual material, performed extracts and music, including Sarah Bernhardt’s controversially erotic portrayal of Lady Macbeth in 1884, and Ellen Terry’s embodiment of the character in 1888, which Sargent famously captured on canvas. Events lasts approximately 30 minutes.This event is free and entry is on a first come first served basis, so it can't be guaranteed.
