Introduction 45 minutes before the performance

One of Shakespeare's most beautiful and poetical pieces is "As you like it", a complex wonder which could encorporate the whole world and which as a play realises the term "all the world's a stage". The idealisation of Orlando and Rosalind's love is portrayed opposite their relatives more realistic thirst for power. We see Jacque's cynical melancholy, which even manages to disenchant
the Forest of Arden. This is a wise and meaningful work by Shakespeare, the genius. The Globe Touring Company is part of the London Globe and has successfully performed many times in Neuss and all over the World.
