Shakespeare In Song

Choir and theatre in the heart of Paddington

This is your unique opportunity to see the Templar Scholars join forces with the Reversed Shakespeare Company for a feast of Shakespearean theatre and music in the heart of Paddington. In a gala event to mark the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, you'll hear time-honoured settings of Shakespeare by Vaughan-Williams, Kodaly, Pearsall and Frank Martin, alongside a brand new commission from renowned composer Cecilia McDowall – just one day after the premiere is broadcast by the BBC Singers. Fresh from their sell-out run at the Islington Pleasance, the Reversed Shakespeare Company will intersperse the music with live excerpts from Shakespeare's plays and sonnets. Under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Under 25s pay only £6; must show valid ID. Latecomers may not be admitted.
