#SundaySoundtrack: Shakespeare

It was Shakespeare's birthday this week so we wanted to dedicate this playlist to music inspired by his plays. However, he has inspired so many works of art, that it's impossible to know where to start. It's barely the tip of the iceberg, but from Prokofiev, to Verdi, Cole Porter to Rufus Wainwright, here is an hour of music created because of the words of the Bard of Stratford-Upon-Avon.
