If Music be the Food of Love: Celebrating Shakespeare

It’s been 400 years since the Bard’s death and he’s never been more alive, in a sense. The concert pays tribute to William Shakespeare with a programme of music inspired by four of his great plays, which have, for centuries, inspired composers to create. The night features works by the likes of Otto Nicolai and his overture for ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’; William Walton’s film score for ‘Henry V’; ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, for which Mendelssohn wrote ‘Wedding March’; and Tchaikovsky’s orchestral work for ‘Romeo and Juliet’.
