Hosted by David Tennant and Catherine Tate, this star-studded show from the BBC and the Royal Shakespeare Company celebrates Shakespeare’s plays and their enduring influence on music, dance, opera, musical theatre and comedy. Captured live from Stratford-Upon-Avon on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, RSC Artistic Director Gregory Doran has assembled an astonishing once-in-a lifetime cast, including Dame Judi Dench, Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Helen Mirren, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tim Minchin, Rufus Wainwright, John Lithgow, David Suchet, Rory Kinnear, Joseph Fiennes, the cast of Horrible Histories, The Royal Ballet, English National Opera (ENO), Birmingham Royal Ballet, and many more, plus a very special appearance by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales, to perform in a unique tribute to the genius and influence of the world’s greatest playwright and storyteller.

Shakespeare Live! From the RSC features numerous theatrical performances, as well as Shakespeare-inspired works spanning the musical genres, including hip-hop, blues, musical theatre, jazz, opera and classical music. This unique gala event immerses you in the excitement, the drama, the laughter, the tears, the constant reinvention and the utter timelessness of the works of William Shakespeare.

Gregory Doran, RSC Artistic Director, said: “I am thrilled that the Royal Shakespeare Company’s celebration to mark this very special anniversary will be seen in cinemas across Britain and around the world. Performances of some of the greatest dramatic scenes ever written, played by some of our greatest actors, will look and sound wonderful on the big screen, as will the songs, the comedy, the dances and the music that we are bringing together in Shakespeare’s home town. Watching it together with an audience in your own town should make it truly an evening to remember.”
