Stratford Festival – The Taming of the Shrew

 

Taming_ProductImage_20160211_02Courtship or conquest? The breakdown of a defiant spirit or a breakthrough that liberates a heart deprived of love? From the world-renowned Stratford Festival, this scintillating production of Shakespeare’s boisterous comedy The Taming of the Shrew will stir your emotions as you follow the love story of Katherina and Petruchio – the feisty lovers at the center of Shakespeare’s most pointed social commentary. Deborah Hay gives a “performance for the ages” as the Shrew, and Ben Carlson is the perfect counterpoint as her plotting suitor, creating a chemistry that sets the stage alight.

The Taming of the Shrew was captured live on stage with a full audience at the Stratford Festival’s Festival Theatre on September 29, 2015, using 10 cameras and 128 tracks of sound to create a sensational high-definition, surround-sound production. Additional “pick-up” shots of key performance elements were captured on stage immediately following the performance.
