Our thrilling presentations of the London’s Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre live on stage in the Napa Valley: Much Ado About Nothing and King Lear, Fiasco Theater’s acclaimed Cymbeline, and our world premiere of Measure + Dido starring Derek Jacobi – each with free school shows, invited rehearsals or  in-school presentations by the stars, and our sold-out screenings of Shakespeare captured on stage in London in digital HD – including “Twelfth Night” starring Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry, provided just a taste of what’s to come. We are currently planning a star-studded play inspired by Abraham Lincoln’s lifelong love of Shakespeare, a staged reading helmed by one of Broadway’s most acclaimed directors, a symphonic performance of music inspired by Shakespeare conducted by a legendary Maestro and narrated by a film legend, a thrilling presentation for students performed by one of the country’s most prestigious theatre conservatories, a lively speaking engagement by a foremost authority on the language of Shakespeare, and solo shows by the world’s greatest interpreters of Shakespeare to be held on quintessential Napa Valley stages, including the courtyard of the Castello di Amorosa. Plus an expanded season of Shakespeare on Screen, and more live from London’s Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre!
