Shakespeare is German
Globe Education’s autumn series of public events celebrates Germany’s special affinity with Shakespeare.
The season opens on Thursday 7 October with the launch of a new book, commissioned by the Globe, of new translations of Goethe’s essays on Shakespeare. Also this October there are talks on Shakespeare – A German Writer starring Sebastian Koch (The Lives of Others, The Black Book), A Tale for All Seasons: Reflections on the German Preoccupation with Shakespeare; Shakespeare and George’s Circle; and a special event, Much Better in German, with actor Norbert Kentrup who learned English from scratch to play Shylock in the Globe’s first production of The Merchant of Venice in 1998.
