If Music Be the Food of Love: Shakespeare in the Music Library
This exhibit is one of a number of exhibits throughout the University Libraries commemorating the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare.
Music provides a kaleidoscopic array of perspectives through which scholars can view the works and influences of William Shakespeare. While many people are familiar with the most famous uses of Shakespeare in music in such works as Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Overture-Fantasy, Verdi’s Shakespeare operas (Falstaff, Macbeth, and Otello), Mendelssohn’s incidental music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet ballet, this exhibit will highlight some of the most significant topics related to the intersections of Shakespeare and music with some lesser-known examples from the holdings of the Music Library.
