A Shakespearean playhouse with an ultra-modern twist in Poland


The curtain has gone up on a Shakespearean playhouse with an ultra-modern twist in Poland’s port city of Gdansk, built on the very spot where four centuries ago English actors performed masterpieces by the Great Bard, albeit on a more humble stage.

The new 22-million euro ($28-million) venue, which opened this weekend with a performance of Hamlet by the world-renowned Shakespeare’s Globe company, already boasts Britain’s Prince Charles among its most ardent fans.

Professor Jerzy Limon, a literary scholar, is the driving force behind the Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre and the city’s annual Shakespeare festival, which has been drawing audiences since 1993.
