Last night the local mayor who had once played Hamlet in the state theatre inaugurated the first Bitola Shakespeare Festival. This formality was matched by a huge multilevel Roman proscenium that filled the entire back wall of the stage. At first I found that the vast playing space and highly wrought movements made it difficult to engage with emotions of the characters. But as the performance continued it seemed to me that director Dejan Projkovski was using the distancing effects of physical scale and conscious artistry strategically. The Queen Mab speech declared their shared need for constant physical and imaginative stimulation.
The famed tragedy, directed by long-time theater veteran Francine Davis, brings the audience many laughs, tears, and the entire spectrum between the two. In the quaint Italian city of Verona, two families are in feud. In learning their lines and roles, the actors grow into their characters.
