All the world's a stage - Review

The Vivace chorus and The Brandenburg Sinfonia directed by Jeremy Backhouse joined forces with members of the Guildford Shakespeare Company to present an evening of Shakespearian delight at GLive on Saturday evening.

The works of Shakespeare have influenced composers from his own time until the present day and this concert brought us a well selected programme of orchestral and choral pieces interspersed with excerpts from the plays which inspired them.
