Even 400 years after his death Shakespeare is more alive than ever. Nowhere more so than each summer during the Shakespeare Festival at the Globe Theatre in Neuss.
Expat audiences wishing to hear the English language can choose between three companies from England.
Mountview Productions brings Julius Caesar to the Globe, produced by the successful young director Polina Kalinina, the Flute Theatre gives an exciting modern version of Hamlet, Patrick Spottiswoode gives his now legendary lecture Shakespeare and the Globe, while Bristol’s Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory brings the festival to a close with All’s Well That Ends Well.
For Francophile audiences, Pascal Faber directs Le Marchand de Venise performed by the French Compagnie 13.
The 2016 festival is titled Shakespeare and beyond. It includes forty three performances by fourteen companies from the three countries of England, France and Germany. The festival will concentrate on seeking out the effect that his subjects and motifs have had on younger authors and other media.
The renowned Shakespeare Festival in Neuss is one of the most professional events to take place in the Rhine Ruhr region.
