EIF 2011 to offer Asian Shakespeare re-imaginings

25th March 2011

A number of Shakespearean plays will be re-imagined during the Edinburgh International Festival (EIF) 2011 this summer, with Asian culture inspiring this year's programme.

Shanghai Peking Opera Troupe will provide a distinctive adaptation of Hamlet during the event, while Seoul's Mokwha Repertory Company will perform a new reworking of The Tempest.

In addition to these shows, the Taipei-based Contemporary Legend Theatre will provide a groundbreaking new version of King Lear.

Song of the Earth, a ballet by Kenneth MacMillan, will also be performed by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Scottish Ballet during the festival.

EIF 2011 will run between August 12th and September 4th, with ticket prices due to begin at GBP 10.

Theatrical productions performed during last year's event included Lee Breuer and Bob Telson's The Gospel at Colossus, Alistair Beaton's Caledonia, and Vieux Carre by Tennessee Williams.

Songs of Ascension by Meredith Monk and Ann Hamilton was also performed.
