What I'm Listening To: Shakespeare's MacBeth

I had a long drive, by myself, to Chicago this past weekend, so I was excited to learn that Calvin's library recently acquired a complete set of fully-dramatized recordings of the works of Shakespeare. I took Macbeth along with me, cranked it up, and was pretty much spell-bound--disappointed that I got to Chicago so quickly. A great performance that is very creative in trying to translate the dynamic, multivalent medium of the theatre to the pared-down medium of audio. The score is subtle but haunting, and the dramatization is very good. Highly recommended.
