The Summer Shakespeare Festival adds an additional performance

Monday 14th August is the last chance to see Shakespeare’s comedy Twelfth Night. The organisers decided for this additional performance because of the lasting interest on the part of the audience – most of the performances are hopelessly sold out long in advance. The extra play is also meant to substitute for the two rainy August evenings (3rd and 6th) when there were no performances. On the other hand, the weather forecast for the next week seems more promising.

Twelfth Night is one of Shakespeare’s very entertaining comedies. Mistaken identity lies in the very heart of the play and the comedy is about different forms of love such as the platonic one, unrequited or also blind love as well as about feelings between siblings. Nevertheless, there is also lots of humour to be anticipated. Moreover, the characters will have to deal with the traps love can prepare. The spectators can look forward to seeing famous actors such as Jitka Schneiderova, Jiri Langmajer, Linda Rybova or Mojmir Maderic on stage.

This Monday evening is the last chance to see a comedy. Starting from Tuesday onwards the programme changes to the tragedy Othello.

The open-air theatre performances take place in the court-yard of the Burgrave Palace at Prague Castle. You can read about the festival and also purchase the tickets here.
