Reviews - What do customers think about The Tempest (Arkangel Complete Shakespeare)?
The Tempest (Archangel Complete Shakespeare) Jun 30, 2008
This is the first of the Archangel Complete Shakespeare series that I purchased, and I am more than pleased. As the previous critic said, from the very first moment, the music and the sound effects take you up and place you right in the middle of it all. The acting is superb, and I must mention Bob Peck's performance, as Prospero, as particularly wonderful. He is, in fact, (as soon as I read of his participation in this) the reason I bought this excellently produced CD. How good it is to have this recording of the sadly late, and truly great actor's work. I highly recommend this, and all of the Archangel Complete Shakespeare works.
Beautiful production Apr 24, 2008
