Shakespeare mentions Valentine’s Day in two of his plays: ‘Hamlet’ and ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, both of which we are proud to have staged at Midsummer Scene Festival. We hope you’re having a lovely day with this quote from Hamlet: ‘To-morrow is Saint Valentine's day, All in the morning betime, And I a maid at your window, To be your Valentine.’
Helen Millar, who played Olivia in our ‘Twelfth Night’ snapped the production photo in the foyer of Vienna’s English Theatre where the show transferred in 2016. Officially in the Vienna’s Hall of Fame!
Midsummer Scene proudly announces the Croatian book launch of the first complete English translation of ‘Uncle Maroye’ - a sparkling Renaissance comedy by Marin Držić, first performed in 1551. The play has been translated by one of the founders of Midsummer Scene Festival Filip Krenus and published by Festival’s partner House of Marin Držić, making literary history. London book launch will be announced soon!
A very merry Christmas and a fruitful New Year from Midsummer Scene Festival team. 2018 will be our Season Five and we are very much looking forward to creating new work! With love and warmest wishes to all our friends and followers, Darija, Jelena & Filip
