Globe to Globe is an unprecedented multilingual programme of Shakespeare productions pro-duced by Shakespeare’s Globe as part of the World Shakespeare Festival. Over six weeks every one of Shakespeare’s plays will be performed by a major company from a different country in its own language.
Perhaps the Americas’ most famous production of the most famous play ever, Grupo Galpão’s carnivalesque Romeo and Juliet returns to the Globe with its thrilling mix of circus, music, dance and Brazilian folk culture. The only festival participants to have played at Shakespeare’s Globe before, they bring the promise of a cavalcade of passion. Performed in Brazilian Portuguese with an English synopsis.
