VIDEO: Richard II - Production Diary 8

This weeks Richard II production diary focuses on the music of the play. 
The music of the court of Richard II as imagined by Bruce O'Neil, the RSC's Head of Music, and Paul Englishby, composer. They've created the musical landscape for this production and share a few of its 'divine and angelic' musical moments.

The RSC always have musicians playing live in their theatres for their performances because as Bruce says, 'It really gives you a special atmosphere that you can't reproduce in any other way.'

A recording from the play can be purchased as a CD in the RSC shop or a download from the iTunes store.
