Pop-up Globe, the world’s first full-scale temporary working replica of one of the greatest theatres in history, Shakespeare’s theatre, the second Globe, is ready for action. TheatrePeople are here to take a sneak peek photo feature the upcoming action..
Theatre lovers from throughout Australia have snapped at the chance to see one of Shakespeare’s four masterpieces – Othello, Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It and Henry V — performed in the space in which he intended them to be performed and never-before seen that way in Australia.
Pop–up Globe will feature all the spectacular theatrical trickery of the Jacobean era, including cannons, flaming arrows, hundreds of litres of fake blood, hand-forged armoury and more than 450 beautiful bespoke period costume pieces. Capped with an onion dome, Pop–up Globe will be a remarkable feature of the Melbourne cityscape, just as the second Globe was in London.
