Comment:        SHK 8.0267 Miranda and Prospero

David Lindley's review of the Shared Experience Tempest (SHK 8.0267
Miranda and Prospero) evoked enjoyable memories of a performance I saw
here in Jerusalem, one of the stops in their tour.  A facets of the
production he didn't mention was the integration of movement (Liz
Ranken, choreographer) into the exposition, which worked well enough for
me to suggest that Bernice Kliman might find something of interest in
viewing the ballet *Romeo and Juliet* danced to the music of Prokofiev.
Both the Kenneth Macmillan and John Cranko versions are quite dramatic.

A Verdi version of Shakespeare such as Othello, being a switch of
language as well as of genre, might be too far out, but no less
enjoyable to glean.

Best wishes
Syd Kasten

Comment:        Re: SHK 8.0102  Re: Current thoughts on MND

Although this is a very late reply to the comment on MND (our server has
only just revived itself after a lot of reshaping) I would have thought
that rather than transposing Athens for the wood, in the 20th C. our
woods are the skyscrapers of the city and the dark alleys of concrete
and brick.  As urban populations, we don't know trees and out folklore
is more akin to the mythologies of the street than the rites of
midsummer.

Regards,
Scott Crozier

Yes, I saw A&C in Washington. Is it the same company? I wasn't sure it
could be done, but it was done beautifully. But it was difficult to
believe in Cleopatra. I forgot the name of the actress, but I would not
have traveled from Brooklyn to Manhattan for her, much less from Rome to
Egypt. The rest of the cast was brilliant, and the production remained
loyal to the original.
