The audio CD with this edition of Romeo & Juliet contains a series of unique recordings to illustrate how different actors place their own interpretation on the play. Hear Ellen Terry in a 1911 recording. Compare that to Kate Beckinsale in a modern version made in 1997. There are also superb performances from Kenneth Branagh, Sir John Gielgud, Dame Judi Dench and Joseph Fiennes. The text is illustrated throughout with photographs from notable productions, including Franco Zeffirelli’s 1968 movie production, the RSC’s 1976 production and Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 movie production.
