This summer, Capital Classics stages Pericles, Prince of Tyre, Shakespeare’s epic adventure tale. Throughout his epic journey, Pericles matches wits with a murderous king, is pursued by an assassin, battles a shipwrecking storm, and fights knights for the hand of a beautiful princess. Over its three-weekend run, the Greater Hartford Shakespeare Festival will attract more than 2,100 fans, who attend each summer with family and friends, along with a picnic dinner, wine, lawn chairs and blankets. Audience members are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy pre-show entertainment, such as stage combat demonstrations; songs by the Elizabethan Consort; lectures by local educators; and performances by local student groups, as part of Capital Classics’ Youth in Community Arts program.
