5-9 Oct. This year’s much-expanded programme at the Silvano Toti Globe Theatre celebrates the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare.
The festival, once again directed by popular Roman actor Gigi Proietti, ends on a high-note for Rome’s English speakers: the London-based Bedouin Shakespeare Company returns for the second year, with an English-language production of The Tempest directed by Chris Pickles (5-9 Oct).
Rome’s Globe Theatre, located in the heart of Villa Borghese, is a full-scale timber reproduction of Shakespeare’s Globe, copied from the original oak and thatch designs, and almost identical to the one that stands on London’s South Bank.
