King Lear (R2) in October

Metrodome have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of King Lear on 6th October 2008 priced at £19.99 RRP. Recorded in High Definition at Pinewood Studios, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s King Lear stars Ian McKellen and is directed by Trevor Nunn and Chris Hunt. The tragedy tells the story of a headstrong ageing monarch who decides to divide his kingdom amongst his three daughters, depending on which declares their love the strongest. Cordelia (Romola Garai) is the only daughter to reply truthfully yet Lear disowns her, and so follows one of the most compelling stories of greed, betrayal and blindness to one’s self ever committed to the stage.

King Lear will be broadcast on Channel 4 on Christmas Day, and released on Blu-ray Disc on Boxing Day.

The only extra is an exclusive interview with Ian McKellen.
