Venus & Adonis, The Rape of Lucrece
Performed by David Burke, Eve Best, Clare Corbett, Benjamin Soames, Oliver Le Sueur, Ruth Sillers, Hugh Dickson, Daniel Philpott & David Timson
These two great poems date from Shakespeare’s early years and are full of passion and invention. In Venus and Adonis, the goddess of love pleads with the beautiful boy to submit to her advances and become her love – but he only wants to hunt boar. In the more serious Rape of Lucrece, Shakespeare draws on the Roman take of the Emperor Tarquin’s desire for Lucrece and its tragic consequences. These poems give prominent parts to the two heroines, and Clare Corbett and Eve Best shine.
