The production is one of the most popular versions of the play to tour worldwide in the last decade. It has been performed in many countries, such as Singapore, Chile, Norway, Israel and Spain.

The comic, tragic and romantic production explores all the richness of Shakespeare’s great poetic drama. The action is accompanied by live Renaissance music, and masks and statues compliment the powerful and beautiful visual imagery.

“It takes a skilled troupe to bring alive the nuances and richness of Shakespeare, and TNT delivers the witty lines with polished poise in classic style,” said FIFO Magazine Singapore.

The show will be held at the Hanoi Opera House on Wednesday, November 13 and then the Saigon Opera House on Friday, November 15.
