Antony And Cleopatra is performed in Turkish by Oyun Atölyesi as part of the Globe’s innovative programme Globe To Globe.
In 1999, Haluk Bilginer, an Istanbul star of stage and screen, built the pioneering Oyun Atölyesi. It has since become the leading light of the Turkish theatre scene, staging a thrilling and diverse programme, including Timon of Athens, Macbeth and Othello. Haluk returns to the UK as Antony in this new production, which also features Zerrin Tekindor as Cleopatra, and Globe regular Kevork Malikyan, as Enobarbus.
Globe To Globe sees every one of Shakespeare’s 37 plays performed in a different language by an international company. The result is a once in a life time, six week celebration of the incredible breadth of communities and languages that make up London’s vibrant cultural landscape.
