Wednesday marks William Shakespeare's 450th birthday. To celebrate, throughout the day WQXR is playing music inspired by The Bard's works, including Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet: "Fantasy Overture" and Mendelssohn's overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as well as music from Shakespeare's own time. Plus, many of his glorious verses will be read aloud.

You’ll also have a chance to win a pair of tickets to Shakespeare in the Park this summer and a one-year membership to the Public Theater.
