Description
The tragedy of King Lear receives an outstanding performance in an all-star cast led by Britain's senior classical actor, Paul Scofield. He is joined by Alec McCowen as Gloucester, Kenneth Branagh as The Fool, Harriet Walter as Gonerill, Sara Kestelman as Regan and Emilia Fox as Cordelia. This is the ninth recording of Shakespeare plays undertaken by Naxos AudioBooks in conjunction with Cambridge University Press, and is directed by John Tydeman. It was released to mark the eightieth birthday of Paul Scofield in January 2002.

display_descriptionIn "King Lear", a tragedy written by William Shakespeare, the titular king descends into madness after his flattering daughters inherit his kingdom and then betray him. The play, with its complex web of intrigue and deception is a masterpiece of suspenseful drama and boasts many iconic roles, including Lear, Goneril, and Regan, which are coveted by accomplished stage actors. First performed in 1606, it has been adapted many times, most recently in 2018 for the BBC, starring Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson.
