Shakespeare Festival at Hamlets Castle "The Merchant of Venice "
Shakespeare Festival at Hamlets Castle –The Merchant of Venice
HamletScenen presents the tragi-comic play about The Merchant of Venice
Staatsschauspiel Dresden fills Kronborg Castle’s courtyard with 12 charming, power-hungry, sensitive, provocative, loving, greedy and frail men in a powerful version of The Merchant of Venice.
There are quivers of tension, hate, love and provocation at Kronborg when the actors take the stage and most skillfully and masterly find the balance between the humour and the tragedy in the castle courtyard.
This is a very immediate, strong, intense, physical and thought-provoking performance with parallels to the real world. The Merchant of Venice is a story about the love between men and women and also a story about men and women. But it is also a story about hate and greed. Tilmann Köhler and his ensemble of 12 men mirror Shakespeare’s universal drama in the reality which our culture is confronted with today with regard to “The foreigners”. A story about the importance of understanding and accepting the culture and way of life of others in order to avoid the “them and us” mindset.
There will be exclusive entertainment and world class theatre for everyone when the castle courtyard is filled with forbidden love, hate, revenge and provocation.
