Julius Caesar in Italian at the Shakespeare’s Globe

 Julius Caesar in Italian, performed by I Termini Company

Where else but from Rome for Julius Caesar? In a sparse new translation by prizewinning playwright Vincenzo Manna, Andrea Barraco’s Julius Caesar is set in a dreamlike yet contemporary Rome. The production opened in the ancient, haunting theatre in Gualtieri in the north of Italy, and will perform at the prestigious Teatro di Roma prior to the Globe in London.

For students studying Italian, the chance to hear them spoken in performance by native speakers, would be hugely beneficial, as well as providing a fascinating cultural exchange as a playwright intrinsically English is interpreted and adapted by a different culture.

Date & Time in London

Tuesday 1 May, 2.30pm
Wednesday 2 May, 7.30pm
