I agree in general with the comments offered, but for my money, the best
video by far is Adrian Noble's Royal Shakespeare Company production with
Alex Jennings, Lindsay Duncan, Desmond Barrit and Barry Lynch. Jennings
is terrific as Oberon, Duncan a bewitchingly sexy Titania. Barrit a
hilarious Bottom and Lynch a devilish Puck. Fine acting, a magical set,
strange transitions all done on a nearly bare stage that looks like a
midsummer night world.  Hard to find but now available from Poor Yorick
at www.bardcentral.com .   This is the one your students will enjoy.

Not with facing pages, but the Internet Shakespeare Editions has
versions of both quarto and folio for many plays, in its "Annex."

Richard Burt asks "Is there an online site that lets one read quarto and
Folio editions of the plays? With facing pages?" With*out* facing pages,
see, e.g.,

http://www.library.upenn.edu/etext/collections/furness/index.html

which offers a few such plays and a good deal of additional material.

The Furness Shakespeare Library at Penn has many early modern texts
online with the capability to view them side-by-side at:

For Folio and quarto texts and facsimiles of Hamlet 1.4 and 1.5, see
"Hamlet on the Ramparts" at http://shea.mit.edu/ramparts.  To place them
on facing "pages" go to "Reading Room".

Re: William Henry Ireland forgeries

I am producing a film for Miramax Films ("Shakespeare in Love")
concerning the story of William Henry Ireland and his Shakespeare
forgeries in the late1700s and I would appreciate any guidance to those
people you may know of that have original material in their private
collections.

In particular, I am looking for a copy of his forged play "Vortigern".
Any information relating to this project is of interest and I would
appreciate any relevant source material.

Thank you for your assistance.

"Hamlet in One Hour"

Which reminded me in a roundabout way: I recently saw a hilarious
production entitled "Hamlet in One Hour", at the Fringe Festival here in
Melbourne. Rather than being a straightforward condensed version of the
play (as I'd expected), it was a surreal and very funny staging by two
seemingly incompetent but enormously endearing clown-like actors. As
they presented 'The Murder of Gonzago' as a Punch and Judy Show, the
audience was laughing so hard that we were in danger of asphyxiation.

The review's at http://www.stageleft.com.au/ for those who are
interested.  There's also a review there of "Maquina Hamlet", an
Argentinian presentation of Muller's "Hamletmaschine", recently here for
the Melbourne Festival. As I described it to the reviewer I was
assigning it to, "It's an Argentinian production, in Spanish, of a
German writer's treatment of an English play about a Danish prince,
presented for an Australian audience".

Cheers,
Tim Richards.
