Pipes (plural) with traces of cannabis have been found in Shakespeare’s yard – dated conceivably to the period. That’s about all there is ultimately to conclude in terms of hard facts to this article, but there is a collection of enticements to consider. This broke via Times magazine a month or so back but it seems […]
From 2014-2016, to mark the two anniversaries of Shakespeare’s birth and death, the Globe has launched a two year tour to every single country on earth. Click the image above to be taken to the special website designed to track the progress of Hamlet as it undergoes this extraordinary journey. This is a once-in-a-lifetime […]
I want to see the information they’re using to decode that cipher. Doesn’t this all hang on how reliable the cryptography is? See the story in Time Magazine here.
Last winter’s production of The Magic Flute at Symphony Hall in Boston – a collaboration between the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Youth Orchestras, was caught in Symphony Magazine this summer, the trade mag of note in the world of American classical music.
