How do I love thee? Let me count the ways… Remember these lines? And remember the man behind them? The famous Shakespeare, of course.
Travelers to Copenhagen next week can look forward to one rare and quality event that showcases the work of Shakespeare. This is highly recommended for people who are huge fans of the performing arts such as theater. A not-to-missed performance of Romeo and Juliet’s love story will take place on September 3 and 5 at the Rosenborg Slot Gardens in Oster Voldgalde 4A. This is part of the Romeo & Juliet Castle Tour of the TNT Great Britain, a world renowned theater company and ADG Europe.
Unlike the usual venue at an enclosed theater, this performance will be held at a garden with the lovely Dutch Renaissance style Rosenborg Castle as backdrop. This castle was commissioned by Christian IV in the olden days to be his summer residence. Today, it stands as a museum which features Royal Danish collections that include the crown jewels.
For sure, watching this performance in an al fresco setting will make you relive the greatest love story of Romeo and Juliet. With an intimate circular amphitheater setting in a beautiful garden, this is one experience that should not be missed.
To give you an idea, the cast is composed of six people and the production has made sure to come up with the original concept and not a modern one. The main setting will be that of Baroque Italy with characters in richly embroidered costumes. Directed by Paul Stebbings, the musical play will not only highlight the tragic romance between the two main characters but their lighter side as well.
This Romeo and Juliet production has already toured Germany, Central Europe and Asia. Now visiting the Scandinavian region, this musical play will visit a total of 30 countries during its 15-month tour. So mark the dates and book your seats now.
