I really think that the Eclogues of Virgil could work as a play. Maybe not all of them. The fourth would be hard. I read them in English last week whilst waiting for manuscripts to turn up, and I think it would work.
Imagine a stage with a pastoral backdrop. Maybe some live sheep and goats. A rock or two. And these shepherds who walk up to one another and tell each other stories. Or engage in singing contests.
And the singing would have to be real. And it would have to be in earnest. Not silly or moronic. But taking Virgil’s poetry and creating singable, English songs out of it. It would be brilliant.
I’m sure someone has. If so, I wish them luck.
