Merchant Of Venice

Director: Keith Warner
Composer -- Andre Tchaikowsky

"The Merchant of Venice" tells the story of a wealthy heiress Portia, who is forced to set her suitors a challenge: win, and they will win her hand in marriage; but lose, and they will lose much more than a hand!

Bassanio manages to borrow some money from his friend to finance his attempt, but Antonio is forced to take out a loan from the most famous moneylender in theatre -- Shylock. If he cannot repay the money then Shylock wants a pound of his flesh instead.

"The Merchant of Venice" was the only opera by the pianist and composer Andre Tchaikowsky, before he succumbed to cancer at the age of 46.
