LARTS 380 — Shakespeare and the Performing Arts

3 credits
Spring
Roger Oliver

Shakespeare has not only shaped the theater that has followed him, but has profoundly influenced major artists in music, dance, and film. This course will focus on several of his plays (e.g., Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Othello) and the musical compositions, operas, ballets, and films that have been based on them. Landmark productions of the plays will also be discussed.
