The Beethoven and Shakespeare music piece, performed by the string quartet of the Belgrade Philharmonic, an unusual combination of two great artists, will open the seventh Shakespeare Festival.
Beethoven found the inspiration in Shakespeare for many of his works, especially for his music for string quartets, while the overture of Coriolanus is a thank you note to Shakespeare.
The National Theatre from Niš, the Kruševac Theatre and the Nisville Jazz Festival all collaborated on Shakespeare’s play “As You Like It”, based on Nikita Milivojevic’s idea. “The Two Gentlemen of Verona”, directed by Mija Knežević, will be performed by the actors from the Šabac Theatre, while the famous drama by Tom Stoppard about two secondary characters of Shakespeare’s Hamlet “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” will be performed by the actors from the Serbian National Theatre of Novi Sad and directed by Igor Pavlović.
