Tales and Tunes: Shakespeare and Music

The Aspen Institute and Aspen Music Festival & School present Tales and Tunes: Shakespeare and Music, A Conversation with Alan Fletcher, Ed Berkeley & Ken Adelman. Moderated by Carol Adelman (In conjunction with the Society of Fellows symposium).Music was a significant element throughout Shakespeare’s works and for centuries those works have inspired extraordinary music from Beethoven’s Tempest Sonata, to Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet to Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story, three of the many Shakespeare-inspired works being performed this summer at the Aspen Music Festival and School. 

Coming together to explore the interconnections between Shakespeare and the sounds he inspired are four experts and Shakespeare aficionados – Alan Fletcher, CEO and President of the Aspen Music Festival & School; Ed Berkeley, director of the Aspen Opera Theater and on the faculty at The Juilliard School; and Carol and Ken Adelman founders of Movers & Shakespeares, teaching executive leadership ethics with Shakespearean wisdom.

Fee: $15. Tickets at or (970) 920-5770.
