Adventurer, conquerer, political genius, classic author – Julius Caesar lived one of history’s most amazing lives. Yet it was the story of his death that William Shakespeare turned into a dramatic masterpiece.

This spirited retelling brings us Shakespeare’s cast of immortal characters with excerpts from the original dialogue told in a way that young listeners can grasp. This CD will nurture a passion for Shakespeare and an understanding of why these people and historical events still shape our world today.

“Jim Weiss’ unparalleled storytelling weaves excerpts from Julius Caesar in such a seamless fashion…full of interesting anecdotes and facts I never learned in school.” —L.A. Parent
