Shakespeare plays and sonnets performed using 400-year-old Original Pronunciation.
This video demonstrates why historically informed performance can be so illuminating. Puns and lewd jokes, hidden in RP, leap out when performed in certain versions of OP.

Original Pronunciation does make a lot of it make so much more sense…
