Playwright: William Shakespeare

Music: Philip Glass

In William Shakespeare’s royal-family tragedy, the aging King Lear divides his estate between his three daughters, ultimately refusing his youngest and favorite her share because she won’t publicly admit her love for him. The decision leads to chaos and treachery within the kingdom and madness for its monarch.
