Overview:


The BBC and the Royal Shakespeare Company celebrate 400 years of William Shakespeare and his extraordinary legacy in this hugely ambitious event recorded live at Stratford-upon-Avon. The celebration is hosted by RSC actor and former Doctor Who David Tennant and features stage and screen luminaries Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, and Joseph Fiennes, as well as singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright, The English National Opera, The Royal Ballet, and much, much more! The Shakespeare Show tells the story of Shakespeare's life through his own songs, sung by some unexpected faces, often in the places where he lived: from his childhood home, to the church where he was baptized and is now buried. This is a star-studded evening 400 years in the making!
