Richard II

Production Diary 8
18 October 2013

Hear the music of the court of Richard II as imagined by Bruce O'Neil, our Head of Music, and Paul Englishby, composer. They've created the musical landscape for this production and share a few of its 'divine and angelic' musical moments.

We always have musicians playing live in the theatre for our performances because as Bruce says, 'It really gives you a special atmosphere that you can't reproduce in any other way.'

For anyone who falls in love with the music and wants to hear it again, we've also created a recording which can be purchased as a CD in our shop or a download from the iTunes store.
