Shakespeare in the Park | The Winter's Tale and Antony & Cleopatra

The Nashville Shakespeare Festival is a professional theatre company founded in 1988. Heralded as a Nashville treasure, the NSF is beloved for its annual free Shakespeare in the Park productions in Centennial Park in the Bandshell that have delighted audiences for more than a quarter century. The Nashville Shakespeare Festival also operates year-round educational programs, and an annual indoor Winter Shakespeare production at the Troutt Theater on the Belmont University Campus.

The Winter’s Tale, directed by Santiago Sosa, Shakespeare’s fanciful story will be set in a fairy tale world of contrasting peoples inspired by the diverse South American cultures during the Gran Colombia era and will feature live music. (August 10-13, 24-25, September 2-4, 7-8, 16-17)

Antony & Cleopatra, directed by David Ian Lee is a tale of new love in later years as well as a cautionary tale of political brinksmanship in a power struggle that brings war and ruin. (August 17-20, 26-27, 31 and September 1, 9-10, 14-15)
