March is Shakespeare month in Sydney, with a range of theatre events taking place in the Australian city.
With two major film versions of the Bard’s works being released this month, the Australian city of Sydney is laying on a host of Shakespearean re-imaginings to excite visitors on flights to Australia.
If you’ve been to see Gnomeo and Juliet, or you’re looking forward to Julie Taymor’s version of The Tempest, starring Helen Mirren and Russell Brand, then Sydney is the place to be this March.
The Shakespeare season kicks off with Funk It Up About Nothing, an urban take on the classic comedy Much Ado About Nothing, starring a cast of international hip-hop talent.
This bold new production has already received high praise from Time Out Sydney and is running at the Carriage Works theatre until Saturday (March 26th).
Alternatively, if you prefer a more traditional take on your Shakespeare, then head to the Royal Botanic Gardens, where you can catch outdoor performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and As You Like It in the balmy late summer evenings.
