Pop-Up Globe Theatre

Thu 21st September, 2017 – Sat 3rd February, 2018
Sidney Myer Music Bowl
Kings Domain Gardens, Linlithgow Ave, Melbourne
See one of William Shakespeare’s iconic plays performed in a replica of the original 15th century theatre.

A replica of the Globe Theatre, where Shakespeare’s most famous works were originally performed, is popping up at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

Performances include As You Like It, Much Ado About Nothing, Othello, Henry V and Around The Globe In 60 Minutes! – an original performance that takes audiences on a tour of the theatre’s history.

Melbourne will feature the international debut of the Pop-Up Globe, which debuted in Auckland in 2016 to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. More than 100,000 people attended, with its season extended twice. A second season in 2017 garnered international attention.

The 27-metre-wide, three-storey high structure can seat 900 people and is the most accurate replica ever built.
