Globe to Globe Plays Online!


The Globe Theatre has just put most of the Globe to Globe performances online!

As you may know, the Globe invited theatre groups from all over the world to perform all of Shakespeare's plays.

Richard III in Chinese? Twelfth Night in Hindi? Romeo and Juliet in Portuguese?

Yes, yes, and yes! And much more. (And subtitles, too!)

Do yourself a favor and watch some, or all of it. It's really fascinating to see these plays performed in foreign languages, but the stories come through loud and clear.

I assume that they have not prepared the subtitles for all of the performed plays, so the available videos are not complete.

I read recently here, that the performance of The Merchant of Venice in Hebrew by a group from Israel was met with protesters inside the Globe.

I do hope that the Merchant video is eventually posted online, and I hope that they keep the protesters too, no matter how distasteful it was for them to interrupt the actors.

What do you think?
