Dating back 400 years, this priceless book is one of the most significant in Australian history.
On today’s episode of This Arvo In Sydney, we talked to LiSTNR executive producer Dan Mullins and Maggie Patton, the exhibition curator, to find out how and why Shakespeare is still so popular 400 years after he passed away.
In 1623, seven years after he died, publishers in London decided to present all of Shakespeare’s works in one book called Shakespeare’s First Folio.
Ms Patton said that the exhibition highlighted the enduring relevance of Shakespeare’s storytelling; his tales of love, revenge, and power resonate with modern audiences.
