“In short, this may prove as up-close-and-personal an encounter with these two acting giants in major classical roles as you’re ever going to get. The Almeida is an intense, intimate space: when eyes narrow, when nostrils flare, you can see it. Goold lets the venue supply a lot of the atmospherics, isn’t showy-tricksy with the text. Where his Vegas-set Merchant of Venice flaunted its modish invention, there’s a surprising restraint to this three-hour affair, performed in a mixture of modern and medieval dress; is British theatre’s young Turk mellowing?”

The ship to see the performance on the Brijuni Islands leaves at 8:30pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Tickets have sold out, but where there’s a will, there’s a way. More about the Ulysses Theatre soon.
