SHAKESPEARE ALOUD

Shrew Act III, Scene 1 with live harp!

This was just incredible.  This woman was playing the harp, busking on Boylston St.  She sounded amazing – a really gifted player.  The music lesson in Shrew was next, where Lucentio and Bianca communicate their wooing through music, music theory, and very musical metaphors.  It was fabulous playing with the live music – you can hear that she is improvising with the text, continuing through the end with bits of other songs.  We got a small crowd to watch by about half-way through, maybe a dozen people.  This one doesn’t feature a great visual as the light was pretty dark, but the audio, though traffic-filled, is worthy.
