This overview of Shakespeare in Prague: Imagining the Bard in the Heart of Europe
will survey highlights of this special exhibition, including costumes, stage set designs, and publicity posters, for plays by Shakespeare performed in the Czech Republic, produced by Czech and Slovakian artists and designers. The plays—King Lear, The Tempest,
and many more—carried messages, often veiled, for the Czech and Slovakian people about issues such as freedom and conscience, mirroring their struggles and triumphs during the World Wars, Cold War, and the present day. Cost of the program is $20 for nonmembers (includes general admission) and $5 for members. Questions? Please call 614.629.0359.
