The play “The Storm”

For fans of Shakespeare, there is a great option where to spend the weekend in Lviv. This Sunday, the premiere of the play “The Tempest” based on William Shakespeare’s tragi-comedy of the same name will be held at the National Theater of Maria Zankovetska.

Oksana Dmitrieva, the director of the play, described “The Storm” as follows:

“Shakespeare’s last play is incredibly sad and beautiful. We live in a crazy world where everyone is megalomaniacal. This is a sad tale about the fact that humanity cannot grow up.”

This outstanding premiere was made possible thanks to the cooperation of three leading theaters of Ukraine – the National Theater named after Maria Zankovetska, the Kharkiv Academic Puppet Theater named after V. Afanasyev, and the Kyiv Academic Theater of Drama and Comedy on the Left Bank of the Dnipro.
