Pericles, Prince of Tyre is a Shakespearean epic —an exciting and exotic adventure of mystery, marvels, and mayhem— now brought to life in this bold new production. Having discovered a dark secret in the court of Antiochus, Pericles is forced to wander a world filled with captivating characters. It’s an odyssey of life and death, morality and depravity, civility and barbarity, and, most of all, of the everlasting endurance of love.
Idle Discourse brings you one of the Bard’s grandest tales with irreverence, humour, and maybe just a little bit of silliness. An energetic and accessible interpretation of the play, expect remarkable English-language Shakespearean storytelling at its most evocative!
Valtice’s theatre dates back to 1790. After falling to ruin following the war, in 2015 the venue was painstakingly restored to its original state, utilising the original layout and recreating the working stage machinery. The venue is an incredible authentic space in which to watch one of Shakespeare’s great epics. The site is around an hour’s drive from Vienna.
When: September 5-7 at 4pm.
Where: Zámek 1, 691 42 Valtice, Czech Republic
