All of Shakespeare's 37 plays are being performed in as many different languages, as part of the Globe Theatre's contribution to the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad. It's a chance to see some of the finest acting companies from around the world.
We hope you'll join us in spreading the word about this ambitious programme. Our English team works closely with the Globe Theatre to put on a range of events for teachers to help bring Shakespearean drama alive for students. And we offer qualifications in many of the 37 languages, from Gujarati to Mandarin.
For our Shakespeare-loving English teachers, we've selected four of the bard's 'greatest hits' - A Midsummer Night's Dream, Anthony and Cleopatra, King Lear and The Tempest – as texts for our A2 English Literature pre-1800 drama and poetry unit from September 2012.
There's still a chance to see Anthony and Cleopatra in Turkish (another OCR language) performed at the Globe this weekend with Haluk Bilginer, one of Turkey's top actors, in the leading role.
Visit the Globe Theatre website for more information on this and the other performances taking place up to 9 June, including Hamlet in Lithuanian and the The Merchant of Venice in Hebrew, as well as Henry V in English.
