Brush Up Your Shakespeare - Review of Maine Summer Shakespeare Plays by Joseph Coté 07/10/19 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Brush Up Your Shakespeare - Review of Maine Summer Shakespeare Plays by Joseph Coté

BRUSH UP YOUR SHAKESPEARE – Review of Maine Summer Shakespeare Plays by Joseph Coté
July 10, 1-4 pm, Midcoast Senior College
Two nearby professional theater companies will offer Shakespeare this summer – the Theater at Monmouth with The Merry Wives of Windsor and Hamlet and the Camden Shakespeare Festival with the Taming of the Shrew (Bath, Camden) and Hamlet (Camden). This seminar will review the settings, characters and plots of all three plays with snippets from the forever-recognized (“to be or not to be”) and the not-so-well-known soliloquys. We may also explore three pairs of female characters – the tragic duo of Gertrude and Ophelia in Hamlet, the plotting antics of Mistress Ford and Mistress Page in Merry Wives, and the soon-towed sisters Kate and Bianca in Taming of the Shrew.

Joseph Coté is a seasoned professional actor and former student of the esteemed John Broome of the Royal Shakespeare Company. He has performed in twelve plays in the Shakespeare canon; favorite roles include Richard II, Iago, Malvolio, Worcester, Chorus, Jaques, Edgar, Don Armado and Parolles. He also originated the title role in the play Wallenberg before performing the play in Budapest, Krakow, and Auschwitz; the script was later adapted for the 1985 Richard Chamberlain film.

Strauss, Wagner, Stravinsky, Brahms

This evening’s concert is the first of two evenings featuring the work of Pulitzer Prize–winning guest artist, Melinda Wagner, whose Unsung Chordata (2018) is a meditation on “creating something out of nothing, with few guarantees.” We’ll also hear two short gems – Franz Hasenöhrl’s whirlwind arrangement of Strauss’s playful tone poem, and Stravinsky’s virtuosic Concertino– and a longer one – Brahms’s clarinet trio in its arrangement for viola, allowing a beloved favorite to shine through a different lens.
