Christopher Bruce's Ten Poems is set to a recording of ten Dylan Thomas poems, emotively read by Richard Burton and loved as much for their musicality as for their themes of lost innocence and nostalgia for childhood.

The soundtrack to The Crucible is a collage of scores, many of which taken from movies such as Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho and Vertigo and Jean-Jacques Annaud's Enemy at the Gates. This atmospheric, cinematic sound will fill theatres with drama and passion.

We've created special playlists to allow you to sit back, relax and listen to the emotive and rhythmic readings of Ten Poems, and to the powerful cinematic scores used in The Crucible.
