Much Ado About Nothing
25 September @ 8.00 pm - 11.00 pmAED 150 – AED 450
“Perhaps the original rom-com” (© Jasper hope, Chief Executive of Dubai Opera) comes to Dubai in a new production by a new touring company.
The New English Shakespeare Company is the creation of producer Jamie Hendry, who has been responsible for some top West End hits and a run of internationally successful tours (his production company did the magic spectacular Impossible, which came to Dubai Opera in 2016 and sold out).
This version of the Shakespeare favourite – Beatrice and Benedick are made for each other, but they don’t know it – promises a contemporary take on the story (probably including music, if his past shows are anything to go by) with direction by the much-garlanded Derek Bond.
Hendry says “New English Shakespeare Company was born out of a passion to make Shakespeare’s work resonate with today’s audiences … Shakespeare’s words speak to everyone, and our mission is to help his plays sing out loud and clear to the hearts and minds of audiences everywhere in productions that are bold, lively, relevant, meaningful and, above all, entertaining”. Which sounds promising …
There are further performances on 26, 27 and 28 September.
