Merchant of Venice [2004]

From the "Great Scenes from Shakespeare" series, this video portrays two key (and controversial) scenes from "The Merchant of Venice." In Act I, Scene III, Shylock, the Jewish moneylender, agrees to lend money to a Christian man on the condition that if he defaults on the debt, Antonio, the debtor's friend, will pay with a pound of flesh. In Act IV, Scene I, Portia, disguised as a Doctor of Law, outwits Shylock in his claim for the pound of flesh. The "Great Scenes" series, in which actors perform in authentic period costumes on stages patterned after Elizabethan theaters, brings to life the atmosphere and themes of the larger play. Produced by Seabourne Enterprises, Ltd.This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.
