3.en.91 Jumping back in time: from The Phantom of the Opera at Palais Garnier to Shakespeare’s Globe on the South bank of the Thames

From the Opera Garnier in  Paris, we shall take a big leap in time  and land at the banks of the Thames, at the London Globe.  With Vicent, you have been studying the 16th and 17th centuries, haven’t you? so you must be familiar with some historical facts that took place in Shakesperare’s time. Shakespeare (1564-1616) is considered the greatest  writers in English Language. You have already read one of his love sonnets with Magdalena and now,  this end of the year,  you will look at one of his plays, Romeo and  Juliet.

I would like you to have a look at The Globe, the theatre where many of Shakespeare’s plays were staged: Hamlet, Othello and king Lear. . Shakespeare’s Globe was destroyed by a fire in  1614. The New Globe, was reconstructed as it was in Shakespeare’s time and opened in 1997. Visit the site and find out what’s on right now. Then, do me a favour, will you? .I would like to see a performance of Hamlet in July. Could you check whether there are any tickets left. I would prefer to stand in the yard, to be as close to the actors as possible.  Also, I  would like to know how much I’d have to pay. Thanks, let’s see who manages to get the information first.

Now watch this short you tube video to see the reconstructed globe. We shall watch it again in class.

Now, a different perspective.

  • What does this video tell us about Shakespeare’s plays?
  • Can Shakespeare’s plays be approached  from a modern perspective?
  • What does the vidoe say about plots and subplots?
