Digital tales of two star-crossed lovers, a maniacal Scotsman, an army general and more interactive content from the British bard.

Cambridge University Press has produced the Explore Shakespeare app, which digitises classic stories like Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth and more.

The plays come with narration from Hollywood A-listers like Michael Sheen and Kate Beckinsale, who play the two young star-crossed lovers.

What's more, the app includes photographs from screen adaptations so users can benefit from even more content.

Explore Shakespeare has been tailored to combine the acclaimed literature with the 21st century for die-hard fans and casual readers alike.

John Pettigrew, executive producer of the series for Cambridge University Press, said: "We believe that Shakespeare’s work is genuinely accessible to everyone as long as it’s presented the right way.

"With the new possibilities offered by Apple’s new iPad and iPad mini, the time has come for more people than ever to discover this for themselves."

Explore Shakespeare is split into different series' and each app costs £9.99 from the Apple App Store.
