Sam Wanamaker Playhouse
Shakespeare’s Globe

Gyre & Gimble at Shakespeare’s Globe






Vivaldi’s pictorial masterpiece comes to thrilling, theatrical life in an exhilarating show which combines live music with enchanting visuals. A troupe of performers, combining our master puppeteers with a quintet of London’s finest musicians, will conjure a poetic and emotional narrative in response to Max Richter’s acclaimed recomposition of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons.

This unprecedented collaboration, inspired by the mastery of Japanese Bunraku theatre, promises to explore not only the form and techniques of puppetry, but the crystalline acoustic and candlelit ambience of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse in an enchanting new way.
