The Globe Neuss is one of Germany’s three Globe replicas and welcomes Shakespeare companies from all over the world every year for their International Shakespeare Festival. This will be their 23rd festival and hosts the King Lear company for three performances on 25 and 26 June.
The theatre at Neuss racecourses in Germany was established in 1991 and is built in such a way that the audience and the actors are sometimes close enough to touch each other.
The building is constructed of wood and steel and provides 500 seats on three different levels in a half semi-circle around the stage.
The Shakespeare Festival is organised by artistic director Dr. Rainer Wiertz and head of production Andreas Giesen and his crew. It is completely unique and enjoys the company of theatres from all corners of the globe – Zimbabwe, USA, Italy and the UK to name a few.
Tickets can be purchased directly from the festival’s booking page here.
