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.”

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

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 are 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.
