The National Theatre of China present Richard III in Mandarin as part of the Globe’s innovative season, Globe To Globe.
This momentous occasion will be the National Theatre of China’s first visit to the UK. The company, which stages work in three different performance spaces in Beijing, works with the finest playwrights and directors in China. Their trailblazing productions show the new face of 21st century Chinese theatre. This production of Shakespeare’s wicked horror-show of power and paranoia, will be directed by the National’s Associate Director, Wang Xiaoying.
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.
