BBC Proms presents
Prom 44: Shakespeare on stage and screen
“The Proms continue all this week. The memorably named Prom 44 (Thursday, 7.30pm, Radio 3) features the BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Keith Lockhart, performing music from stage and screen inspired by Shakespeare’s plays, ranging from Kiss Me Kate and West Side Story to Walton’s Prelude to Richard III. The first half is British, there’s a chat with actor Michael Pennington in the interval and then the second half is Broadway all the way.”
