Synopsis:
Adapted by renowned author and Shakespeare scholar Leon Garfield, in collaboration with leading academic lights, these beautiful, dramatic and rewarding tales are masterly abridged renditions of the classic texts, fully faithful to the narrative and language that makes Shakespears the most loved and respected playwright history has ever produced.

Hamlet

All animation techniques are painstaking, but that of painting on glass is especially so. This unusual medium succeeds in exquisitely capturing the ghostly presence of Hamlet's father and the agonising of Hamlet himself, in this classic depiction of corruption, madness and revenge.

The Tempest

A marvelous and terrifying island, populated by spirits and monsters, is the ideal setting for demonstrating how puppets can become extraordinarily convincing "actors". Caliban becomes an almost human monster and Prospero's magic brings the spirit Ariel to life in a way that no stage performance could ever hope to achieve.
