Together they have assembled 400 great actors of the British theater and produced a landmark digital recording with a sophisticated layering of sound that immerses the listener in Shakespeare's world.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-The Complete Arkangel Shakespeare offers listeners the first-ever audio set of all 38 of William Shakespeare's plays, unabridged and fully-dramatized. Using a cast of almost 400 actors, most of whom trained at the Royal Shakespeare Company, this set offers Shakespeare in a manner that provides the best of both worlds: the convenient mobility of the audio format and classic, dramatic readings by skilled Shakespearean actors that are reminiscent of Sir Laurence Olivier's Shakespearean performances. Sound effects are skillfully layered and add to the intensity of the pieces as they are presented. The quality of these CDs is remarkable. The diction is clear, the emotions are strong, and the sound effects are well-chosen, easily creating the worlds of the plays in listeners minds. The major drawback for school and public libraries is that the entire series must be purchased-plays are not available on an individual basis. Since most high schools teach only four Shakespearean plays-Hamlet, Macbeth, Julius Caesar, and Romeo and Juliet-purchasing this series in its entirety is a major investment that might be better suited to university libraries and drama departments. Public libraries can purchase the entire series for use by college students and adults as well as high school students. Any library that does purchase this exceptionally well-done, impressive masterwork will enjoy it for years to come since Audio Partners has a lifetime replacement policy.-Heather J.

    Media with Real Shelf Life

    I gave this to myself for my birthday several years ago. The performances are excellent and it is wonderful to be able to just pick a play off the shelf and listen whenever the mood strikes. If you are the type of person who has attended Shakespearean plays regularly over the years and has days when little snippets of the Bard play in your head, this is a great set to have at hand and return to over the years.

    Open yourself up to the world of Shakespeare

    Top rate acting and a masterful production. I've listened to 9 of these plays now, several of them many times over, and not one has disappointed. These audio plays have at last made Shakespeare accessible for me and commuting to work (which is when I listen to them)is a joy.

    Worth the wait!

    I had a difficult time parting with the money for this collection but it was well worth it. I recommend it highly!
