Have you ever heard of Globe theatre?
The British High Commission working together with the Ministry of Tourism and Culture are delighted to announce the tour of Globe Theatre to Solomon Islands. Globe theatre is one of the world’s most famous theatres.
Globe theatre will be performing one of Shakespeare’s most famous works, Hamlet at the national auditorium on June 18. It will be a unique opportunity and a milestone in the history of theatre for Solomon Islands. Tickets are currently selling at the National Museum craft shop and the Culture Department Office at the Ministry of Culture and Tourism.
Globe to Globe Hamlet opened at Shakespeare’s Globe on 23 April 2014, the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth. This completely unprecedented theatrical adventure will see Hamlet tour to every single country on earth over 2 years. Sixteen extraordinary men and women are currently travelling across the seven continents, performing in a huge range of unique and atmospheric venues.
Dominic Dromgoole, Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe and Director of Hamlet said:
“Globe to Globe Hamlet was created with the aim of performing Hamlet to as many people as possible, in as diverse a range of places as possible. The central principle of the tour is that Shakespeare can entertain and speak to anyone, no matter where they are on earth; and that no country or people are not better off for the lively presence of Hamlet.”
Globe to Globe Hamlet has performed in over 100 countries across the Americas, Europe and Africa to more than 89,000 people, with over 1/2 of the whole tour now complete.
