Before the curtain closes on its 2012 season, the Stratford Shakespeare Festival continues a half-century tradition of classic theatre from the Bard and the great playwrights who have succeeded him. Shakespearean comedy and tragedy take the stage as English King Henry V urges his countrymen on the battlefields of France “once more into the breach.” Loneliness is the enemy in the comedy Much Ado About Nothing, in which matchmaking is the sequel to warmaking. A classic love triangle drops its hypotenuse behind the scenes of Broadway in 42nd Street, in which a director, a star, and a rising star battle in a jeu de coeur.
A pair of Canadian artists present world premieres of three new works including Wanderlust, _The Best Brothers, and Hirsch. Calgary-born Morris Panych’s Wanderlust musically explores the longing that dreams of gold, love, and lovable gold can provoke, whereas Novia Scotia’s Daniel MacIvor studies the relationship of two brothers mourning their mother’s passing in The Best Brothers.
Stratford Shakespeare Festival's ticket prices vary depending on the performance.
