Pop-up Globe Is Back!

After the extraordinary 2016 debut season which sold over 100,000 tickets and was extended twice due to popular demand, Pop-up Globe is returning to Auckland this summer with a stunning new theatre design, four new productions of Shakespeare’s masterworks, and a beautiful new garden setting at Auckland’s Ellerslie Racecourse.

Fusing cutting-edge scaffold technology with 400-year old design Pop-up Globe recreates as accurately as possible the actual performance conditions of the second Globe: live music and dance, ferocious fight sequences, direct address, and every show ends with a rousing jig. 

The house lights remain on during the evening performances, meaning the actors and audience share the same space and experience – the audience is always a vital part of the show. Pop-up Globe gives a unique opportunity to step back in time and experience Shakespeare just as it would’ve been seen at the second Globe 400 years ago.
