"Mixing travel, adventure, interviews and specially shot sequences with the Royal Shakespeare Company on the road, the series sets the life of Shakespeare in the turbulent times in which he lived--a time of surveillance, militarism and foreign wars."
In an effort to enhance understanding of Shakespeare's plays, this program brings together visuals dealing with Elizabethan London and the Globe theater, theatrical traditions at the time, and sites associated with Shakespeare's life and family. Includes excerpts from performances.
This website has digitized copies of the first published editions and modern translations of Shakespeare's plays. The site also has historical information on Shakespeare and the Elizabethan Era. The Performance section has fully searchable production list of Shakespeare plays.
"The Global Shakespeares Video & Performance Archive is a collaborative project providing online access to performances of Shakespeare from many parts of the world as well as essays and metadata provided by scholars and educators in the field." - by Peter S. Donaldson, Director
