The World's Greatest Music
Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, A Midsummer Night's Dream: William Shakespeare's plays and poetry have inspired everything from artwork to movie adaptations. Find out which composers took inspiration from the great playwright, creating some brilliant classical music in its own right.
Hamlet's uncle kills his father, Hamlet is rejected by Ophelia, he goes mad, and dies at the end, right? Not in Thomas' adaptation. There are a fair few plot changes - including the addition of an uncharacteristically lively drinking song, and Hamlet, who is very much alive, claiming his place on the throne as the curtain falls!
