Synopsis

Shakespeare's classic with a modern twist...

Shakespeare’s classic tale of jealousy, loss, love and reconciliation is given a magical reworking by YMT this summer. Set in the contrasting locations of the stark northern climate of an old-style Soviet state and the relaxed warmth of the Mediterranean, comedy and tragedy walk hand in hand towards the most extraordinary and unexpected of conclusions. With music by award-winning composer and broadcaster Howard Goodall and directed by Nick Stimson, Associate Director at the Theatre Royal Plymouth.

Howard Goodall is one of Britain’s most distinguished and versatile composers. He’s the man behind the music for some of the best known TV theme tunes (The Vicar of Dibley, Blackadder and Red Dwarf to name but a few) as well as musicals such as The Hired Man and Two Cities. He is England’s first ever National Ambassador for Singing and Classic FM's Composer-in-Residence for 2009.
