Sir Derek Jacobi and Frances Barber present The Food of Love, an evening of exquisite orchestral and choral music from stage and screen that bring Shakespeare’s extraordinary words to life, with famous excerpts from his plays and entertaining theatrical anecdotes!

The nation’s favourite musical moments from the greatest adaptations of the Bard will make an evening to remember, with the scores of Craig Armstrong (Romeo and Juliet), Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in love), William Walton (Henry V), Nigel Hess (Royal Shakespeare Company productions), Henry Purcell, Roger Quilter and Ralph Vaughan Williams.

One of the world’s best-known actors, double Olivier Award winner Sir Derek Jacobi has played many of Shakespeare’s seminal characters on stage during his illustrious career, including Hamlet, Macbeth, Lear, Prospero and Richard III. His numerous screen appearances range from Murder on the Orient Express to the popular series Last Tango in Halifax.

Frances Barber is an award winning actress whose work has combined leading roles in theatre, film and TV in the UK. Seasons at The RSC, The National and London's West End have seen her play a variety of parts in Shaw, Chekov (Sonya in Uncle Vanya, for which she received her second Olivier Nomination and a TMA award for Best Actress) Tennessee Williams, Shakespeare and many contemporary playwrights.

We are very grateful to Frances Barber who will now join Sir Derek Jacobi for this concert. Frances Barber replaces Samantha Bond, who unfortunately has had to withdraw from this event.
