Reviews - What do customers think about King Lear (Arkangel Complete Shakespeare)?

King Lear as it was meant to be!  Jun 21, 2008
Reading Shakespeare's classic tragedy is one thing, but listening to it performed in such a masterful way is another. This oral production of King Lear brings this play to life in a powerful way. What better way to get through traffic than to be entrenched in the world of treachery, pride and redemption! The actors are magnificient! This is one of my best purchases from this site.
 
The Best recording of the Best tradegy  Dec 9, 2007
This is the best performance i have ever heard of this play. Trevor Peacock (Lear) is phanominal. Every time i listen to it i find my self repeating lines back. Its just such a meaningfull play, and it is done to justice. Kent and Edgar are loyal and valliant, glouster and lear are tragic and Edmond is villanous...Its great.
 
Worth the purchase, even if you dislike tragedy  Mar 8, 2007
King Lear has gotten old and wishes now to divide his kingdom among his three daughters. The better praise they give him, the more they receive. With the exile of Lear's youngest daughter, Cordelia, Lear begins to experience the vices of his remaining daughters first-hand, as well as the greed of the illegitamite son of his friend, Glouchester.

The cast was well chosen for this production, although it's heavy-handedness makes for some slow and quieter performances. Samantha Bond shines as the virtueous Cordelia and David Tennant gives a fantastic, if not somewhat subdued performance, as Edgar and Poor Tom. The music between each new scene and act can be a little tiresome, but overall, the production is a well-collaborated one.

I do not favor tragedies as a rule, but I do recommend this play to someone who finds them appealing or wishes to have a well-rounded understanding of Shakespeare's plays.
 
King Lear  Feb 8, 2007
This recording is remarkably effective as a piece of theatre. Well-cast, well acted, well conceived.
