John Drakakis asks 'What about Tromio and Juliet?'

I don't know if he means 'is it available?' but it is easily available
here in the UK. My local video store had sold out - so it's obviously
popular. I particularly cherish the moment when Juliet's father is
beaten over the head with a copy of the Yale Shakespeare.  And, by the
way, to be pedantic, it's 'Tromeo and Juliet'.

John Drakakis mentions that Joe Macbeth is "difficult" to get.  Does
that mean it is actually available somewhere?  I'd love to get my hands
on it for the store.  I'm trying a few new sources for Jubal (I've
received several helpful e-mails pointing the way).  Tromeo and Juliet
is also available - still high priced up here in Canada, but cheaper on
DVD.

Yours,
Tanya

Comment:        SHK 9.0069  Re: Modern Adaptations

Dear friends,

I am currently updating the "Shakespeare as Character" and "Spinoff"
bibliographies for SHAKSPER and have incorporated most of the recent
posts about various adaptations. Several people have mentioned an opera
of _Hamlet_, but I lack a few details, such as the author's full name
(the last name is Thomas, I believe) and the date of composition. Your
assistance would be appreciated. You can e-mail me directly at

 This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
 . Thanks for your help. The revised versions should
be available fairly soon.

Chris Gordon

[Editor's Note: I want to offer my grateful thanks to Chris Gordon for
volunteering to update the Spinoff (SPINOFF  BIBLIO) and Character
(CHARACTR BIBLIO) Bibliographies, both areas of continued interest since
SHAKSPER began. -Hardy]
