Notes

Notes
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre makes several recordings of a single production, using three fixed cameras, to enable practitioners and researchers to observe how the play has developed during the run.
General
The production follows on from brief experiments with original pronunciation during the company’s run of Romeo and Juliet in June 2004. The Globe was advised by Professor David Crystal, a scholar of phonetics and language.
History
The production ran August 24-September 28 in the Season of World and Underworld.
