The Royal Ballet: ROMEO AND JULIET

Event details: Kenneth MacMillan’s poignant setting of Sergey Prokofiev’s classic score draws out the emotional and psychological intensity of Shakespeare’s tragic tale of two star-crossed lovers.Romeo and Juliet contains three passionate pas de deux: the lovers’ first meeting, the famous balcony scene and the devastating final tragedy. Juliet is one of the most coveted of all ballerina roles, and as MacMillan’s ballet enters its 50th year it resonates as deeply with audiences today as when it was first seen half a century ago.

Performed live at the Royal Opera House. Includes two 10-minute intermissions.

Shakespeare on Screen: ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA

 Event details: Virtue and vice, transcendent love and realpolitik combine in Antony and Cleopatra, Shakespeare’s greatest exploration of the conflicting claims of sex and power, all expressed in a tragic poetry of breathtaking beauty and magnificence. Cleopatra, the alluring and fascinatingly ambiguous Queen of Egypt, has bewitched the great Mark Antony, soldier, campaigner and now one of the three rulers of the Roman Empire. When Antony quarrels with his fellow leaders and throws in his lot with Cleopatra, his infatuation threatens to split the Empire in two.

Recorded live at Shakespeare’s Globe. Includes two 10-minute intermissions.

V - Shakespeare in Action - Shakespeare Challenge - 2013 - Trinculo is Reeling Ripe

The Cast of The Tempest from the 2013 Shakespeare Challenge

For the past three years, community members from the corporate sector fearlessly took to the stage in productions of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Tempest, and Twelfth Night to raise funds for Shakespeare In Action’s educational programming. Their generosity has helped to foster literacy, enhance creativity and promote speech arts for youth at risk in Toronto’s priority neighborhoods.

This year, The Challenge will feature twelve community members coming together to unleash their inner Shakespeare under the direction of Shakespeare in Action’s renowned Artistic Director Michael Kelly. Our Challenge Champions will perform an abridged version of The Comedy of Errors. In a race against time, these brave souls have rehearsed one night a week for eight weeks to prepare and present this memorable production. That’s the Shakespeare Challenge!

We are giving away a pair of tickets to the Shakespeare Challenge, where guests will be treated to a performance of The Comedy of Errors, food and drink, and a live and silent auction with fabulous packages, including a trip for 2 to Montreal to attend a Just For Laughs event, wine tasting tours, golfing passestheatre tickets, and many more! Most importantly, all funds raised will go towards Shakespeare in Action’s educational programming, giving access to the arts to students in priority neighbourhoods across Toronto!

HOW TO ENTER:

To enter, all you have to do is send an e-mail to jenny@shakespeareinaction.org with your name and contact information, and tell me who your favourite character from The Comedy of Errors is!

Contest closes at 11:59PM on Friday, March 20, 2015. Winner will be selected at random and contacted via phone or email. 

Good luck to everyone who enters!
