Shakespeare: Gained in Translation

... a panel discussion which will explore the adaptation and appropriation of Shakespeare by diverse cultures, and the conversion of Shakespeare into other media such as opera and film. What can such 'translations' (using the term in the broadest sense) tell us about Shakespeare? How might they help us to look at him afresh?

Tom Bird, director of the 'Globe to Globe' festival at Shakespeare's Globe (37 plays in 37 languages)
Dr Gregory Dart, English Department, UCL, who will speak on Verdi's Shakespeare
