“Shakespeare in Concert” features actors from Acorn’s “Naked Shakespeare Company,” directed by Mike Levine; soprano soloist Mary Sullivan; and the Chorale, under the direction of Emily Isaacson, in scenes and songs from As You Like It, Twelfth Night, The Tempest, Othello, and more. Music by composers from Thomas Morley, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Giuseppe Verdi, William Schuman, and Amy Beach, to contemporary composers Steven Sametz and Judith Lang Zaimont celebrates Shakespeare’s words in interpretations from four centuries.
Bowdoin Professor of Music Mary Hunter will provide pre-concert remarks about music in Shakespeare’s works, both in his own time and in later stagings.
