July 10th, in Timisoara, The Globe touring production of Romeo and Juliet. I'd have preferred a different play, but to get the locals in to a performance of Shakespeare I can't think of a better play.
I'll be curious to see the size of the audience - remember it is going to be in English (well, Shakespearean) in a provincial town, with most of the teenagers and students (and teachers) on summer holiday away from the town and the heat. Not only that but the same night there is a performance of La Traviata in a production from the Mariinsky Theatre on at the Opera House.
Topping it off though is the trip planned to The Globe itself in London in August - I'm being dragged to see The Merry Wives of Windsor: Now that I am excited about.
(Along with my Romanian friend Cris) I attended the first ever afternoon public performance at The Globe many years ago - and it is something which has marked me for life.
