Classical music inspired by Shakespeare
Written and directed by Peter Greenaway, 'Prospero's Books' is a film adaptation of Shakespeare's 'The Tempest', with a soundtrack by Michael Nyman. As well as the jagged jazzy rhythms of 'Prospero's Curse' and the tranquil 'Where the bee sucks, the film is also known for its extramusical content - the extensive use of nudity and animation are two notable features.
