Riel Theatre presents: The Hobbit pt 4

in Daily Programme

by Edward Pearse on Thursday, 27 January, 2011

This week’s broadcast is the final instalment of Nicol Williamson’s version of The Hobbit.

Nicol Williamson, best known to many people as the chrome-skulled Merlin from John Boorman’s Excalibur, narrates an abridged version and performs about 20 different voice characterisations for this recording of the story.

Released on 4 LPs in 1974 by Argo Records, and adapted and produced by Harley Usil, Williamson does all the voice work with traditional medieval music used as bridging pieces throughout.

So join us at the Clarendon Conservatory in New Babbage for the Listening party at 7:00 PM SLT.
