About this title


A tale of vanity, lust, and betrayal, the third of Shakespeare's great tragedies is dramatized with a full cast. Starring Paul Scofield in the title role, along with Kenneth Branagh, Harriet Walter, Alec McCowen, and Michael Maloney.

From AudioFile:

It's a great pleasure to hear Paul Scofield as King Lear in a recording published to coincide with the actor's 80th birthday. The famous tenderness of his voice is well suited for the intimate medium of recorded drama; Lear's Act Three prayer ("Poor naked wretches") and his later scenes of reunion and reconciliation with Cordelia, for example, are among the most memorable moments of this recording. Kenneth Branagh, who played Edmond in a 1994 BBC recording of the play, here delivers a compassionate performance as the Fool. Alec McCowen also stands out as Gloucester and conveys the range of the old man's credulity, bitterness, and humanity. John Tydeman's direction oversees a moving production.
