“Theatremaker Robert Lepage’s shows have dazzled a global audience. As a performer, designer, director and writer, his profound theatrical experiences explore history and the tiny humans swept up within it.” —The Guardian
A great warrior-turned-politician is despised by his people—and the feeling is mutual. What could go wrong? In a new production directed by visionary Robert Lepage, Shakespeare’s tragic story of Caius Marcius, aka Coriolanus, explores the age-old tensions that still tear at the heart of democracy. Performed by one of the world’s most prestigious acting companies and featuring production design that taps into the newest in theater technology, this stunning production is a rare opportunity for students studying Shakespeare, theater, technology, social sciences, geopolitics, history and citizenship. This performance contains some sexual innuendo and depictions of violence.
