Quintessence visits London this summer
There is no place like London for great theatre. And there is no better time to visit London than in July.
Experience the best of British theatre when you join Quintessence’s Artistic Director Alexander Burns for an unforgettable exploration of British theatre. You will see 10 plays in 10 days and tour the great theatres under the guidance of one of Philadelphia’s top theatre experts.
First stop is London where Alex will take you backstage at The Tower of London, Shakespeare’s Globe, The National Theatre, The Royal Opera House, and Theatre Royal Drury Lane. Each evening before you see some of London’s great theatre, you will join Alex for a pre-show preamble. Then you enjoy the season’s best plays at The National Theatre, The Almeida, The Young Vic, The Royal Court, The Royal Opera, and Shakespeare’s Globe.
Stratford-Upon-Avon is the second stop where you will enjoy the best of Shakespeare performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company. And, you will debate the myth of Shakespeare with Alex as he guides you through Shakespeare’s birthplace, Trinity Church and Warwick Castle.
