Taymor’s Dream screening in Melbourne

27 July, Melbourne.

Julie Taymor is acknowledged as one of the most thrilling directors of Shakespeare in the world today. Her New York production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream was a masterpiece of word, music and image building into something beyond an ordinary piece of theatre.

Supported by the University of Melbourne’s Shakespeare 400 initiative, and by the Victorian College of the Arts and Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, Australian audiences will finally have the chance to immerse themselves in Taymor’s exquisite multi-media, hallucinatory stage world. “Taymor’s Dream was released on film at the Toronto International Film Festival in late 2014 and has had limited release primarily in the UK and North America. This screening for the University of Melbourne community is the Australian premiere.”

Hopefully this will be an inspiration to other cities.
