Musicians in Ordinary: Shakespeare’s Lives of Girls and Women

February 13, 2016 at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Running the gamut from the naughty to the tragic, the young women in the plays are never far from a lute. (Ophelia carries one; Katharina breaks one over her tutor’s head.) Love, loss and often justifiable haughtiness of the older women (in the great ladies and in the lute songs praising Elizabeth) are all considered by the playwright and in the poems set by Dowland, John Danyel, Robert Jones and others. With dance music by Holborne, Johnson et al.
