Perchance to dream...

The time: 30 January, 1966; the place: the stage of the Theatro Lirico, Milano.

Classical actor Vittorio Gassman recites the famous soliloquy from Hamlet whilst Ellington plays in accompaniment the opening piece from his Shakespearean suite, Such Sweet Thunder.

It is a consummate performance...
