Shakespeare plays recorded by the Royal Shakespeare Company are to be screened in Beijing and Shanghai to mark the 400th anniversary of the British playwright's death.

"Live from Stratford-upon-Avon", a collaboration between the Royal Shakespeare Company and Picturehouse Entertainment since 2013, was launched in China on Sunday.

Directed by Gregory Doran, Shakespeare's four plays Richard II, Henry IV Part I and Part II and Henry V will be presented from May to October in China.

The Royal Shakespeare Company will also work with Chinese playwrights and dramatists on new translations to help the works of Shakespeare reach ordinary Chinese people.

At the same time, Chinese classics will be translated into English and staged in Britain.
