Much Ado About Nothing

Much Ado About Nothing

Presented by the Pop-up Globe Queen’s Company

“I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow, than a man swear he loves me.”

See the legendary Beatrice and Benedick as you’ve never seen them before in Shakespeare’s original ‘rom-com’, Much Ado About Nothing. You’ll laugh and cry from start to finish as they navigate their way to love in this hilarious production which turns Pop-up Globe into an uproarious house party.

Much Ado About Nothing

The Pop-up Globe Queen’s Company presents Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy, Much Ado About Nothing, at Pop-up Globe Melbourne.

Travelling home in the summer heat, a group of soldiers break their journey on a South Pacific island, at a luxurious mansion inhabited by a wealthy businessman and his beautiful entourage.

But while the valiant Claudio and beautiful Hero are head over heels in love, the cynical Benedick swears he’ll never be married – and particularly not to the quick-witted Beatrice. Or will he? Mayhem ensues.

With a contemporary setting, and performed by a full cast in spectacular costumes that blend the past and present, Much Ado About Nothing is an invitation to a joyful and uproarious house party, combining live music, dance and performances by a specially formed international ensemble.

The Pop-up Globe Queen’s Company is Pop-up Globe’s resident mixed company of male and female actors and live musicians, working with world experts to bring you the shock of the old: the effect of Shakespeare’s plays performed in the space for which they were written.

“Superb” – New Zealand Herald, 2017

“If you miss it you are denying yourself the Shakespearean treat of the year, the production and Queen’s Company are unsurpassable, you will smile every time you think about it.” – Bridget, audience member.
