Globe’s innovative programme Globe To Globe closes with an English language production of Henry V by the Globe themselves.
Henry V is a spinetingling masterpiece about the turbulence of war, and the art of peace. The play which opened the first Globe with the words ‘O, for a Muse of fire…’ celebrates the power of English, or any other language, to summon into life courts, pubs, ships and battlefields, within the embrace of ‘the wooden O’.
Henry V will continue throughout the Globe Theatre 2012 season, for full details visit the listing.
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.
