The best bargain in London! I go to virtually every performance there and spend only £5 to be a groundling. This means I stand in the yard of this beautiful reconstructed Elizabethan theatre. It is a fantastic experience whether you watch Shakespeare or non Shakespeare, the latter often less crowded. Hats off to Sam Wanamaker whose original idea it was. If you are not sure if you can stand for three hours, give it a try anyway. You can always leave at the interval! I bet you won’t leave! I am 65 and find it fine ....
The main theatre in Stratford Upon Avon , situated on the banks of the river. Home of the Royal Shakespeare Company. Personally I have never liked the outside which looks so much like a 1930s civic building. However the inside is now great after a recent total overhaul. Instead of the old stage with its inappropriate proscenium arch, the inside is now so much more like an Elizabethan theatre. Quality productions with excellent acting.
China has hundreds of opera variations, but the Peking Opera is the most celebrated! The style mixes acrobatics and kung fu on top of acting, singing, and dancing. Enjoy a show at the Liyuan Theatre and watch in awe as costumed performers grace the stage. Daily performances consist of a four-part repertoire. Each act tells a story relating to local culture, history, ancient legends, and romance. There are screens beside the stage that flash English subtitles to keep you up to speed with what’s happening!
Catch a marionette production at the iconic Little Angel Theatre, an institution dedicated to puppetry. Bring your children closer to the craft by enrolling them in the company’s different programs, which include puppeteering, doll-making, and playtime. There’s also something for adults here, should you want to make it a shared interest.
