"We are such stuff as dreams are made on..."
Shakespeare's last solo work for the stage sees the magician Prospero bring his enemies to his enchanted island, where love and magic intertwine to achieve lasting reconciliation. Performed by a full cast and live musicians, this production marks a new departure in AUSA Outdoor Summer Shakespeare's 50+ year history.
Directed by award-winning Auckland director Benjamin Henson, and starring internationally acclaimed actress Lisa Harrow as Prospero, the production will see AUSA Outdoor Summer Shakespeare leave their regular location at the University of Auckland to take over the Pop-up Globe for their 2016 season.
"Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines"
Pop-up Globe is an open air amphitheatre and in the Groundlings under the sun it can get quite hot. We recommend bringing a hat, sunscreen, a water bottle and even a handheld fan. Umbrellas are not permitted inside the yard so in case of rain please bring a raincoat!
Pop-up Globe Auckland is a full-scale working temporary replica of the second Globe Theatre originally built by Shakespeare and his company in 1614, the result of groundbreaking international academic research. With a steel frame ‘skinned’ in plywood the Pop-up Globe fuses cutting-edge scaffold technology with 400-year-old designs and superb contemporary performances to create an immersive 360 degree experience unlike any other.
Presented by AUSA Outdoor Summer Shakespeare.
