bard on the beach


JUNE 11 – SEPTEMBER 20, 2015

“How many ages hence shall this our lofty scene be acted o’er, in states unborn and accents yet unknown?” asks Cassius in Shakespeare’s Roman tragedy, Julius Caesar, suggesting that, at the beginning of England’s imperial ambitions, the poet confidently expected his plays would survive to be performed across the world.

Situated in Vanier Park, Vancouver’s annual Bard on the Beach festival presents two of Shakespeare’s bestloved works each year on its Main Stage. From A Midsummer Night’s Dream to The Winter’s Tale, each performance at this 520-seat facility is set against a panorama of ocean, mountain and wide open sky, so audiences get to benefit from Vancouver’s stunning natural surroundings in addition to each spectacular performance.
