More than 400 years after his death, the works of Shakespeare are as lively as ever. Nowhere more so than each summer during the Shakespeare Festival at the Globe Theatre in Neuss, Germany.

The 2017 programme includes sixteen English language performances, one in Portuguese, one in French and two in Cantonese. Expat audiences preferring English can view such delights as A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, Romeo & Juliet and Othello.

Bristol’s Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory bring Othello to the Globe, The Watermill Theatre from Newbury stage two productions with Twelfth Night and Romeo & Juliet while Mountview Productions of London perform Ben Jonson’s The Alchemist in Neuss.

For Francophile audiences, Le Cid from Pierre Corneille is performed by the French Atelier Théâtre Actuel, Paris. Cantonese returns to the Globe with Macbeth performed by the highly intense Tang Shu-Wing Theatre Studio all the way from Hongkong. Finally, Companhia do Chapitô, Lissabon perform Macbeth, the Comedy in both Portuguese and English as well.

The renowned Shakespeare Festival in Neuss is one of the most professional events to take place in the Rhine Ruhr region and Germany as a whole.
