This complete and unabridged collection of Shakespeare's 37 plays, performed by The Marlowe Dramatic Society and Professional Players, plus all of the 154 Sonnets combined with the 3 narrative poems comes together to create an ultimate collection in one 100 CD boxset. The recordings feature celebrated actors such as Sir John Gielgud, Richard Pasco, Dame Prunella Scales, Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Trevor Nunn, Oscar winner Dame Peggy Ashcroft, Patrick Wymarck, and more.
The recordings were originally released on Argo Records and contain readings by The Marlowe Dramatic Society, recorded in the late 1950s and into the 1960s. As a tribute to the life of William Shakespeare there is no better time to make these well-regarded recordings available on CD and in digital formats for the very first time.
Organisations both nationwide and globally are coming together to celebrate the quatercentenary of the world's most famous poet and playwright. Decca will be working alongside Shakespeare400, a season of cultural and artistic events across 2016, celebrating four hundred years of Shakespeare, his creative achievement and his profound influence on creative culture across the centuries. It is the collective endeavour of a consortium of leading cultural, creative and educational institutions in and around London, working closely together to express the impact of Shakespearean creativity on the widest range of artistic forms.
