In this video, Claire van Kampen (Globe Associate for Early Modern Music) and Bill Barclay (Director of Music, Shakespeare’s Globe) discuss the beauty of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse musically.

Claire talks us through the experiments and exploration that the space will offer, looking at the difference between musical instruments used outdoors,  for the Globe, and indoors for the Playhouse.

Bill elaborates on the Playhouse as a dynamic concert hall, with the 2014 programme mirroring concerts from before plays in the Jacobean era.

First season announced, performances from January 2014.
