John Barton



I love these recording of Acting Shakespeare with John Barton...check them out...

I've posted this one with Patrick Stewart here before...



In 1960, along with Peter Hall, he co-founded the Royal Shakespeare Company where Barton was an active director for over 40 years. He has directed over 50 productions either on his own or as a collaborator with Sir Peter Hall and Trevor Nunn. Some landmark productions at RSC include 1969's Twelfth Night with Judi Dench as Viola, and the 1963/1964 sequence of Histories (with Peter Hall and Clifford Williams). In the RSC's 50th anniversary commemorations (2011) Barton's teaching is acknowledged as one of the lasting reason's for the company's success and he is regarded as one of the most influential directors of Shakespeare of his time.

Je suis allé 2 fois à la RSC, j'ai vu Measure for measure et antony eans cleopatra, quel ennui ! Mon dieu, les acteurs anglais sont excellents sur écran mais sur scène : ennuyeux ! boring, boring !
