Programme Notes

A song from Terry Hands’ celebrated production which toured extensively, including seasons in Los Angeles (as the centrepiece of the Olympic Arts Festival) and on Broadway. The score, together with Cyrano de Bergerac (playing in repertory with Much Ado), won the New York Drama Desk Award for ‘Outstanding Music in a Play’. "Remarkably catchy music (Shakespeare's greatest hits?) is supplied by Nigel Hess. His more solemn setting of ‘Sigh no more, ladies’ deserves to be more than a hit: a standard." (Robert Cushman, The Observer)
