BARD TALKS

16 EXCLUSIVE SHAKESPEARE-FOCUSED WEBINARS

In-depth studies of  
Antony and Cleopatra, Love’s Labour’s Lost, Cymbeline, and Twelfth Night 


BARD TALKS is our new interactive Shakespeare webinar series. Lectures will be led by distinguished teachers and leading scholars from universities, libraries and institutes across the globe.  These talks will be presented in conjunction with The Shakespeare Center’s professionally-staged reading series, which includes Antony and Cleopatra, Love’s Labour’s Lost, Cymbeline, and Twelfth Night – all directed by internationally acclaimed director and educator, Louis Fantasia.

“The aim is to expand access to the greatest scholars of Shakespeare, and share their latest insights about Shakespeare, his times, and his work to life-long learners and all who wish to explore Shakespeare more deeply,” said Ben Donenberg, Executive Artistic Director of Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles. “The webinar programming reflects the mission of The Shakespeare Center to ignite personal and community transformation through the words of Shakespeare.” 

BARD TALKS webinars will focus on Shakespeare’s timeless themes, production history from the Elizabethan era to today, and investigations into the classic characters at the heart of four of Shakespeare’s most challenging plays: Antony and Cleopatra, Love’s Labour’s Lost, Cymbeline, and Twelfth Night. Each webinar will be accessible via live-stream exclusively to the membership of The Shakespeare Center and BARD TALKS subscribers.

Memberships with Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles start at $75 and include a range of benefits in 2019 such as access to all 16 webinars and discounts on tickets to live events and performances.
