Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to the inaugural conference of the
Shakespeare and Music Study Group, on 10-11 December.

The Conference will be online and feature two keynote addresses: by
Professor Ross Duffin (Case Western Reserve University) and by Claire van
Kampen (composer and director for the Globe Theatre).

In addition, Conference delegates will have the chance to see for the first
time John Casken’s *The Shackled King*, a ‘music drama’ derived from
Shakespeare’s King Lear, with Sir John Tomlinson CBE in the title role and
Rozanna Madylus (mezzo-soprano) as Cordelia, Goneril, Regan and The Fool.

The complete programme and book of abstracts will follow shortly. For more
information and to join the Study Group, please visit: 

To help with running costs of the Conference and future events, and to
contribute towards the fees of the performers of *The Shackled King* who,
as freelance musicians, are in particular need of support at the present
time, we ask you to consider making a modest optional donation at the time
of registration, in lieu of a registration fee.

To register, please go to: 

We hope you can join us.

With best wishes

Michelle Assay (Chair of Shakespeare and Music Study Group and co-convener
of the Conference)
