As this year is the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth, FNIMN offers another chance to hear a concert which marked 50 years of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
Another chance to hear Friday Night Is Music Night celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Royal Shakespeare company with a programme dedicated to the music written for the films, ballets, operas and shows, of Shakespeare's plays.
The concert features members of the RSC performing some of Shakespeare's most famous soliloquies. The BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Roderick Dunk, plays music ranging from Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream, Verdi's Macbeth, William Walton's Henry V and Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet.
There's also music from Patrick Doyle's score for the Kenneth Branagh film versions of Much Ado About Nothing and Hamlet, Cole Porter's Kiss Me Kate, Rodgers and Hart's Boys From Syracuse, West Side Story and the film Shakespeare in Love.
This concert first broadcast on Radio 2 in June 2011.
