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

In January 2019, The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles will launch BARD TALKS, a 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 & 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.”
