Cast-CD der umjubelten “Was ihr wollt”-Version von Stratford ab 12. August erhältlich

Noch bis Ende Oktober ist Des McAnuffs Version von Shakespeares “Was ihr wollt” (”Twelth night or what you will”) im Rahmen des Stratford Shakespeare Festivals zu sehen. Für diese Version hat McAnuff gemeinsam mit Michael Roth Songs geschrieben, die noch in diesem Sommer als Cast-CD zur Produktion veröffentlicht werden.

McAnuff über die Musik und die Songs zum Stück:

The score pays tribute to the past 60 years of musical history.The exotic land of Illyria is depicted as a place where music and sport reign to create an erratic and disobedient world of mayhem and mischief.
I would describe Twelfth Night as ‘Shakespeare’s other musical’ with As You Like It being the first. There are seven songs in the script, but we’ve taken that to ten, all of which will be included in the CD.
We use contemporary songs as a kind of foundation for Illyria, this world of music. Just as Shakespeare would have used his own period’s instruments regardless of the time in which the play was set, we are using the full range of instruments — period and modern — available to us.”
