How incredible that Shakespeare celebrates his 450th Birthday this week.
Shakespeare has been a great source of inspiration to me throughout my life. His talent with language and words is almost untouchable.
It’s even impossible to name my favorite play: Macbeth, Hamlet, Much Ado About Nothing, Henry V, Twelfth Night, Julius Caesar, The Tempest. And then, of course, there is his sonnets.
To hear Shakespeare’s words spoken aloud is truly a magical thing. And so in honour of his birthday, I present one of my favorite pieces performed by my favorite Shakespearean actor, the marvelous Derek Jacobi.
