Subject:        Announcement: Stratford (England) Course

The 3rd annual "Shakespeare at Stratford: Text and Theater" summer study
group in collaboration with the Shakespeare Centre and the Shakespeare
Institute, University of Birmingham, will take place June 21-28, 1998 in
Stratford-upon-Avon, England. We will see six of the eleven productions
of the Royal Shakespeare Company, talk with actors and scholars, go
backstage, and connect with new ideas. We will talk, debate, observe,
talk some more, and laugh. All the while we will be very well looked
after in private guest houses where someone else will do the cooking for
breakfast and dinner. The 1998 RSC season: Twelfth Night , dir. Adrian
Noble (David Calder-Toby Belch, Stephen Boxer-Feste); Merchant of
Venice, dir. Gregory Doran; The Tempest; Measure for Measure; Two
Gentlemen of Verona;  Bartholomew Fair (Ben Jonson), dir. Laurence
Boswell; Roberto Zucco (Bernard-Marie Koltes), dir. James Macdonald;
Goodnight Children Everywhere (Richard Nelson), dir. Ian Brown; three
short Irish plays by Yeats and Synge, and two new plays. The cost of
$945*, airfare not included, covers seven nights' lodging with full
breakfasts daily, five guest house dinners, one group restaurant dinner,
entrance fees to all Shakespeare properties, excellent tickets for six
RSC productions, pre-show lectures and post-show discussions with
scholars from the Centre and Institute, and four guest discussions with
RSC actors. Travel is on an airline and at a fare of your choice. *The
cost is based on the exchange rate, the anticipated lodging and ticket
prices, and an enrollment of 15 participants. The final price may vary
slightly up or down.

Anyone within traveling distance to BAM should try to see one or more
performances of Peter Darling in the one-person production of
*Elsinore,* a meditation on *Hamlet* conceived and staged by Robert
Lepage. It is brilliant. I was jumping up and down for joy at the end.
That might seem an inappropriate response to a tragedy, but this was an
amazing evocation of the play. The actor's voice and body, the amazingly
fluid sets and fabrics, the sound and film effects all came together to
make for an unforgettable experience.

It runs only till Sunday; students and seniors get rush tickets for
7.50. Call 718-636-4100 for information. Evening shows are at 7:30 pm.

Cheers,
Bernice W. Kliman
