Adelaide Festival 28 February - 16 March 2014


Toneelgroep Amsterdam

By William Shakespeare. Directed by Ivo van Hove

The Netherlands

Australian Premiere / Exclusive to Adelaide

"Shakespeare as never before... *****"

- The Independent

Staged for the first time in Australia and exclusive to Adelaide, this is a festival must-see as visionary director Ivo van Hove presents Shakespeare’s power trilogy Coriolanus, Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra as a sprawling and immersive multimedia spectacular. Shattering theatrical conventions, the audience is invited on stage and into the thick of this political drama that frames personal ambition and national interest through our obsession with the 24 hour news cycle. Grab a drink at the bar, move among the actors and settle into a couch as this epic, ground-breaking production unfolds around you.

“One word: go.” New York Post

“An exhilarating pleasure… unmissable” The Guardian
