Highlights include: Garrick's 1769 Shakespeare ode, its revival in 2016, and a devised performance interpretation of it; the full text of Carol Ann Duffy's <em>A Shakespeare Masque</em> (set to music by Sally Beamish); a new Shakespearean libretto inspired by Wagner*;* an exploration of the civic potential of new Shakespeare opera and ballet; a fresh Shakespeare-inspired poetic liturgy, including commissions by major British poets; a production of <em>The Merchant of Venice</em> marking the 500th anniversary of the Venetian Jewish Ghetto; and a remaking of <em>Pericles</em> as a response to the global migrant crisis.</p>
