Shakespeare's epic poem of love and seduction Venus and Adonis joins Mozart's opera The Magic Flute in repertory, each work vividly re-imagined by the groundbreaking South African theater troupe Isango Ensemble. Scored with marimbas and drums, Isango's Magic Flute has placed the fantastical Egyptian tale of a wayward prince in the underdeveloped townships of contemporary South Africa. For Venus and Adonis, they have interpreted the Goddess of Love's enchantment with the beautiful Adonis through a scrim of carnival-like theatricality, music and dance, performing the text in three different African languages as well as English. Having played to sold-out venues around the world, Isango now brings its fascinating multicultural takes on these classics of Western drama to Shakespeare Theatre Company. Learn More
