Taming of the Shrew

If you are doing the Honors Project, you can choose any one scene from Taming of the Shrew to write about. Then, locate that scene in any of the art below or anywhere else on the internet. Happy travels!

The ballet written by Matchavariani is a great resource. If you are not interested in dance, just write about the music.
