Music Week


We're celebrating the sounds of our shows this week, with Music Week.

Music has always played an important part in our productions and Shakespeare's plays are filled with music, with:

  • More than 2,000 references to music
  • Over 400 separate musical terms
  • Around 100 songs

We've also produced musicals including Les Miserables and Matilda The Musical.

This week (4 – 8 August), our musicians will take over our FacebookTwitter and Instagram – sharing behind the scenes photos and stories and throwing open the doors to our music store.

Look out too for a competition, facts and the opportunity to send in your music-related questions.

Follow #RSCMusicWeek for the latest updates, and use the hashtag to send us your question.

Find out more about the music for our productions and read the Musical Notes blog from our archives.
