Elizabethan Times


This lovely girl is on her way to perform his part in the Merchant of Venice at the Globe Theatre in London. The theatre is a jewel in the midst of the city, away from the hustle and bustle of the vast commerce and influenced only by the plays of The Bard, Monsieur Shakespeare himself. The site stands where it was 400 years ago and it was built using the original plans. The crowd mingles with the actors and vice versa, the atmosphere is very informal and the open roof allows the tender summer night to descend onto the space unnoticed.
