Shakespeare's hidden musical talent

Advertisement

William Shakespeare is known for inventing hundreds of words, but what is less well documented is his innovative approach to music. A new production of his play The Tempest will open later this week in London, and aims to convey how Shakespeare incorporated music into his story in a way never seen or heard before. Our arts editor Will Gompertz went to the rehearsals at St Giles Cripplegate to listen in.
