UK | World Shakespeare Festival

None The World Shakespeare Festival opens in London, a celebration of Shakespeare as the world’s playwright with 70 productions featuring artists from around the world, performed in 37 different languages.
要一匹马! 要一匹马!愿以王位许之! 'A horse! A horse! My kingdom for a horse!'
Produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, in an unprecedented collaboration with leading UK and international arts organisations, and with Globe to Globe, a major international programme produced by Shakespeare’s Globe, it’s the biggest celebration of Shakespeare ever staged. Thousands of artists from around the world will take part in almost 70 productions, plus supporting events and exhibitions, right across the UK, including London, Stratford-upon-Avon, Newcastle/Gateshead, Birmingham, Wales and Scotland and online.
Buti ar nebuti – štai kur klausimas
'To be or not to be, that is the question.'
In a unique event of unprecedented ambition, Globe to Globe presents performances of all of Shakespeare’s plays, each in a different language, each from a different international company. Every day for six weeks (23 April - 3 June), national theatres, renowned artists and new young companies will celebrate performing Shakespeare in their own language, within the Globe Theatre architecture on Bankside, London for which Shakespeare wrote.
