Update as of September 17: productions have been canceled due to low ticket sales.
Two of Shakespeare’s most known written pieces is set to be staged in Manila for the very first time. Catch A Midsummer Night’s Dream and its tale of delightful comedy and Macbeth‘s brutal life story at The Theater at Solaire this coming September 17 to 22, 2019.
From the producers of Manila’s most-loved shows like Phantom of the Opera, The Sound of Music, Cats, and Wicked, Lunchbox Theatrical Productions is bringing the award-winning Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre Company for their first ever debut in Manila.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a comedy story of four crisscrossed lovers with fairies and magic potions coming in between. The story takes place in Athens and focuses on Hermia and Lysander’s forbidden love story and their plans to elope. Their friend, Helena who was in love with Demetrius had to follow the couple into the woods and the four came across some fairies and their magic potions.
Meanwhile, Macbeth is the complete opposite, telling a story of a man and his dark, bloody and haunting encounters. Coming from a battle, Macbeth with Banquo had an encounter with three witches who had a prophecy that Macbeth will soon become the King of Scotland. Because of his desire for power, he planned to murder King Duncan and assume the crown.
This year, the Philippine stage is set to witness these spectacular productions performed by an outstanding British cast, on their first international season. Catch A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth playing at The Theatre at Solaire this September 17 to 22, 2019.
