Brooklyn Philharmonic: The Power of Shakespeare

May 9 – 10, 2003

Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Description The great teacher and healer in literature, William Shakespeare is this program's inspiration. No playwright before or since has offered us so many clear-eyed visions of both the frailty and the indomitable power of the human spirit. George Benjamin's powerhouse choral work Sometime Voices is based on The Tempest and Henze's Symphony No. 8 is inspired by A Midsummer Night's Dream.
