    This transatlantic Prom presents a range of Shakespeare’s characters as reflected on stage and screen – from Joby Talbot’s ballet The Winter’s Tale to Bernstein’s West Side Story and Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate – and features an all-British first half and a second half devoted to American musicals, conducted by the US-born Keith Lockhart.
