SHAKESPEARE IN NAVARRA

Shakespeare's play "Love's Labour's Lost" filmed in Olite castle in Navarra with Gemma Arterton and David Dawson

Summary

To mark the 400th Anniversary of Shakespeare's death on the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of April, 37 short films of 37 plays will be shown on 37 large LED screens along one of the world’s great walkways, London’s Southbank, from Westminster to Tower Bridge as part of "the Complete Walk" adjacent to the famous Shakespeare's Globe theatre 

Each of the 37 screens along London’s Southbank will play one of 37  new ten minute films on a loop, so imagine Henry IV playing in front of Westminster Abbey, or Romeo and Juliet in front of Tate Modern. Families, Shakespeare enthusiasts, visitors and the general public walk the Shakespeare line, and enjoy a unique and unforgettable overview of his entire opus. They can do the Complete Walk of the Complete Works. They can also dip in and out as they stroll along the riverside. The walk is free, accessible and for everyone.

Out of the films being shown "Love's Labour's Lost" is filmed in the majestic Castle of Olite in Navarra, with the talented Gemma Arterton and David Dawson in leading roles. 

2016 is a significant year for cultural enthusiasts as it is both the 400th anniversary of the death of Shakespeare as it is of Miguel de Cevantes whose most famous work is Don Quixote. It's an astonishing coincidence that these literary masters died a few hours apart 22nd/23rd of April 1616. For more info on events for Cervantes 400 visit the following website 400cervantes.es
